With more and more -omics datasets becoming available, it becomes increasingly difficult to tie them all together. How can biologists properly combine genomics with proteomics and metabolomics datasets? The data is generated through different experiments with different platforms from different vendors. The file formats that these vendors use are often proprietary and do not interchange easily. Community standards lack behind what's possible because it takes time to reach consensus on how to provide for requested features. Other community standards are too loosely defined, leading to communication conflicts, since identical concepts may be represented in different ways.
MetNet does not claim to have a solution to all these problems, but our solutions try to overcome at least some of the obstacles described:
