hi all,

the MAGE-TAB also can have (and often does) good phenotypic information on the sources (patients, mice, etc) of the samples used plus the experimental factors.

it does typically have the method to process from the raw to the processed data but what i meant was the information on how the normalized processed data was reduced to the gene list.

  Hi all,

  I apologize for missing the call yesterday! It seems you had a pretty interesting discussion! :-)
  If I understand Michael's statement, parsing the MAGE-TAB/MAGE-ML into RDF would result in obtaining only the raw and processed data files but not the mechanism used to process it nor the resulting gene list. That's also what I concluded after looking at the data structure created by Tony Burdett's Limpopo parser. 
  However, having the raw data as linked data is already a great start! Kei, should I be looking into Taverna in order to reprocessed the raw files with a traceable analysis workflow?

    hi all,

    (from the minutes)

    "Yolanda/Kei/Scott: semantic annotation/description of workflow would enable the retrieval of data relevant to that workflow (i.e. data that could be used to populate that workflow for a different experimental scenario)"

    what is typically in a MAGE-TAB/MAGE-ML document are the protocols for how the source was processed into the extract then how the hybridization, feature extraction, error and normalization were performed.  these are interesting and different protocols can cause differences at this level but it is pretty much a known art and usually not of too much interest or variability.

    what is usually missing from those documents, along with the final gene list, is how that gene list was obtained, what higher level analysis was used, that is generally only in the paper unfortunately.
