MAGE = microarray gene expression. there is a MAGE ontology (MO), a MAGE
Object model (OM) and an exchange format (MAGE-ML) MAGE was originally
designed to describe a microarray experiment.
the current MAGE OM has a BioMaterials Package which describes many of the
biological characteristics of the material in the experiment. There is an
effort underway to move this information to a different part of the OM so
that other technologies, such as proteomics, can access it as well.
a new MGED WG, the RSBI WG, (Reporting Standards for Biological
Investigations) is working to define terms associated with the descritpion
of a complex biological investigation.
RSBI consists of representatives from the MO, from the ToxWG, from the
EnvWG, and from NutWG (Nutrigenomics).
It is the aim of the discussion to incorporate the modifications to the
Biomaterials Package and the RSBI terms into the second version of MAGE OM /
MO. This will be discussed at the MGED meeting in Bergen in September, or
by joining working groups via the MGED site.
At the moment the strcuture is still under discussion, and changing as new
concepts and ue cases are identified. The RSBI work will be reported in the
ToxWG as it is made public, at which time comments and suggestions from
toxicologists will be eagerly solicited.

Where are the main differences between MIAME and MIAME/Tox?
Where are the main differences between MAGE and MAGE/Tox?
Is there a MIAME/Tox to MAGE-OM/Tox document?
