!Tab2MageImporter

Short description

Imports raw data files and an experiment meta-data in the tab2mage specification into BASE.

Long description

This !Tab2MageImporter imports raw data files and an experiment meta-data in the tab2mage specification into base 2. The tab2mage specification is provided by the microarray (link) informatics team at the EBI, Cambridge. The imported experiment can later be exported by the corresponding tab2mage export plugin. (link).

The entry point for this plugin in base is the detail view page of an experiment. Hence, the user needs to create an experiment first and execute the plugin from this page by clicking on the import tab. The displayed wizards asked for the zip file containing the meta- data i.e. tab2mage file and the raw data files. Furthermore, the user’s email server name could be specified to received notices of success or failure of the uploading or can be omitted to receive no message.
