Mime types for medical data formats


I recently learned that file has obviosely no means for detecting biological
data formats.  Three months ago we had some discussions about Applied
Biosystems chromatograms[1].  This thread more or less had ended with: We
are waiting for an answer of the authors.

Now I wonder whether we could assemble general mime information for
several biological data formats to enable applications to detect whether
files have the format they should have.  I think this would be of great
profit for many applications to be able to easily verify that the input
format fits the format the applications wants to work with.

Kind regards
