The Centre for Integrated Systems Biology of Ageing and Nutrition has developed a Data Portal and Integrator
(CISBAN DPI) based on Milestone 3 of the Functional Genomics
Experiment (FuGE) Object Model (FuGE-OM), and which archives,
stores, and retrieves raw high-throughput data.
We are pleased to announce that the CISBAN Data Portal and Integrator is now available in a
public sandbox version.
Please note that this release is still at an early beta stage, and any data you may upload to the
server may be deleted at any time. You will need a logon to access this database, which you may request
from the helpdesk. This is a low-level of security that will
only serve to prevent anonymous load on the database and to keep your sandbox area separate from others.

Until now, few published systems have successfully integrated
multiple omics data types and information about experiments in a single database. The CISBAN DPI is the first
published implementation of FuGE that includes a database back-end, expert and standard interfaces, and utilizes
a Life Science Identifier (LSID) Resolution and Assigning service to identify objects and provide programmatic
access to the database. Having a central data repository prevents deletion, loss, or accidental modification of
primary data, while giving convenient access to the data for publication and analysis. It also provides a
central location for storage of metadata for the high-throughput data sets, and will facilitate subsequent data
We encourage you to upload data and create as many experiments as you like
so that you may determine if this application may be of use to your own research group. We also appreciate
you contacting us with any comments or questions you may have.
