Researchers from Lund University in Sweden and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons have been working on a web-based platform for storing, sharing, and analyzing array data, which they have named BioArray Software Environment (BASE). The group, including Lao Saal, Carl Troein, and Johan Vallon-Christersson, is planning to make BASE available and free to academics, with open source code. The platform accepts data from different experiment types and platforms, runs on the Apache webserver, database, and uses PHP/HTML/Java/C++ languages and the Linux operating system. It is supportive of the Minimum Information about a Microarray Experiment (MIAME) standard, and can be accessed at http://base.thep.lu.se.
