SBEAMS (Systems Biology Experiment Analysis Manangement System)

In order to better support the data being generated by local microarray, proteomics, macroarray, and other experiments, we are developing and using SBEAMS (Systems Biology Experiment Analysis Management System), a framework for collecting, storing, and accessing data produced by these and other experiments. There is currently a significant amount of effort in the community to determine standards for storing microarray data (MAGE-OM/ML, GeneX, ArrayExpress, SMD, etc; see below), and as such we are working with these emerging standards so that we may leverage this effort in our own work. This will allow the data produced at ISB to be easily exported and will facilitate our efforts to correlate our own experimental results with external datasets.
