Minimum Information About a Microarray Experiment (MIAME)--successes, failures, challenges

ScientificWorldJournal. 2009 May 29;9:420-3. doi: 10.1100/tsw.2009.57.


The Minimum Information About a Microarray Experiment (known as MIAME) guidelines describe information that needs to be provided to enable the interpretation of the results of a microarray-based experiment unambiguously. The adoption of these guidelines has ensured that data supporting published conclusions are made available to researchers in a way that makes these data useful. The MGED Society has already proposed draft guidelines for Minimum Information about a high-throughput SeQuencing Experiment (MINSEQE).
