Bug#319330: ITP: mipe -- [Biology] Tools for storing data on PCR experiments

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Steffen Moeller <moeller@pzr.uni-rostock.de>

* Package name    : mipe
  Version         : 1.1
  Upstream Author : Jan Aerts <jan.aerts@bbsrc.ac.uk>
* URL             : http://mipe.sourceforge.net

  Description     : [Biology] Tool to store data on PCR-derived experiments

 To provide a standard format to exchange and/or storage
 of all information associated with PCR experiments using a flat text file.
 This will:
  * allow for exchange of PCR data between researchers/laboratories
  * enable traceability of the data
  * prevent problems when submitting data to dbSTS or dbSNP
  * enable the writing of standard scripts to extract data (e.g.
  * provide a list of PCR primers, SNP positions or haplotypes for
    different animals)
 Although this tool can be used for data storage, it's primary focus
 should be data exchange. For larger reporisitories, relational databases
 are more appropriate for storage of these data. The MIPE format could
 then be used as a standard format to import into and/or export from
 these databases.
