  1. Some examples of formats, data models, terminologies and public repositories for omics experiments
  2. a. Both repositories, ArrayExpress and GEO, were originally designed to store DNA microarray data. While nowadays, they also allow submission of next generation sequencing data, these are done through underlying submissions to ENA (see and SRA
  3. b. The GEO database does not deal with the MAGE-Tab format, but data from GEO can be accessed in ArrayExpress exposed in MAGE-Tab.
  4. c. PRIDE submission guidelines:
  5. d. CIMR:
