The MGED group is a grass-roots movement whose goal is to facilitate the adoption of standards for DNA-array experiment annotation and data representation, as well as the introduction of standard experimental controls and data normalization methods. The group was founded at the Microarray Gene Expression Database meeting MGED1 (November, 1999, Cambridge, UK).
There are four major standardization projects being pursuing by the group:
MIAME - The formulation of the minimum information about a microarray experiment required to interpret and verify the results.
MAGE - The establishment of a data exchange format (MAGE-ML) and object model (MAGE-OM) for microarray experiments.
Ontologies - The development of ontologies for microarray experiment description and biological material (biomaterial) annotation in particular.
Normalisation - The development of recommendations regarding experimental controls and data normalization methods.
For more information see the Mission Statement or contact one of the members of the MGED Board.
