Channeling the data deluge

Nature Methods, vol. 8 (2011), pp. 463

Abstract

With vast increases in biological data generation, mechanisms for data storage and analysis have become limiting. A data structure, semantically typed data hypercubes (SDCubes), that combines hierarchical data format version 5 (HDF5) and extensible markup language (XML) file formats, now permits the flexible storage, annotation and retrieval of large and heterogenous datasets.
