A scalable, modular, enterprise-level system for both microarray databasing and analysis over the Internet has been developed over the past four years by the National Cancer Institute's Center for Cancer Research in collaboration with NIH's Center for Information Technology. This completely Web-based system, called mAdb (for microArray database), is currently supporting over 810 registered users and collaborators at NIH and contains over 22,000 microarray experiments, making it one of the largest collections of microarray data in existence. In addition, the mAdb system has been ported for the Netherlands Cancer Institute, the Genome Institute of Singapore, and the CDC. This system has been used for a wide variety of scientific experiments spanning the range from cancer to studies of early development, and for human, mouse, rat, yeast, and numerous microbial organisms.
SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to scicrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
