Ongoing development of two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis data standards.


We present an approach toward standardizing two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2-D PAGE) data in support of developing a globally relevant proteomics consensus in order to provide more efficient database querying and data comparisons through the establishment of the necessary definitions and interdisciplinary reference fields for both the 2-D PAGE community, particularly in the proteomics area, and the clinical and experimental biological research communities, in general. This article covers the need for unifying the 2-D PAGE data through a common data repository, and its usefulness in data standards and data interoperability.
