MOTIVATION: In the Life Sciences, guidelines, checklists and ontologies describing what metadata is required for the interpretation and reuse of experimental data are emerging. Data producers, however, may have little experience in the use of such standards and require tools to support this form of data annotation. RESULTS: RightField is an open source application that provides a mechanism for embedding ontology annotation support for Life Science data in Excel spreadsheets. Individual cells, columns or rows can be restricted to particular ranges of allowed classes or instances from chosen ontologies. The RightField-enabled spreadsheet presents selected ontology terms to the users as a simple drop-down list, enabling scientists to consistently annotate their data. The result is 'semantic annotation by stealth', with an annotation process that is less error-prone, more efficient, and more consistent with community standards. Availability and implementation: RightField is open source under a BSD license and freely available from http://www.rightfield.org.uk

I am group leader of the SDBV (Scientific Databases and Visualisation) group at the HITS gGmbH, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies.
I am interested in finding data. Starting with my master's thesis I have always worked on how to store data in a way that you can find it, and how to make sense out of data that has been stored.
Within FAIRDOM I find interesting to help people to store their data in a way that they make sense even after years.

I am an Assistant Professor at Leiden University in the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science. I am a bioinformatician and my research interests are in data integration. I use scientific workflows and semantic web technologies to integrate and analyse data in systems biology and functional genomics.

The main objectives of SysMO-DB are to: facilitate the web-based exchange of data between research groups within- and inter- consortia, and to provide an integrated platform for the dissemination of the results of the SysMO projects to the scientific community. We aim to devise a progressive and scalable solution to the data management needs of the SysMO initiative, that:
* facilitates and maximises the potential for data exchange between SysMO research groups;
* maximises the ‘shelf life’ and
Some examples of transcriptomics templates for Affymetrix data that conform to the MAGE-TAB specification. These templates were taken from the GEO website (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo/info/spreadsheet.html) and modified to conform to the SysMO-JERM (Just enough Results Model) for transcriptomics.
Using these templates will mean easier submission to GEO/ArrayExpress and greater consistency of data in SEEK.

This Excel template is for use with affy transcriptomics data in Matrix table format. It was created from a template on the GEO web site (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo/info/geo_affy.html) and modified to conform to the SysMO JERM for transcriptomics.
This Excel template is for use with affy Chip-chip data where the results of the primary analysis are reported in BAR and BED files. It was created from a template on the GEO web site (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo/info/geo_affy.html) and modified to conform to the SysMO JERM for transcriptomics.
