To be taught at the SLAS 2012 Annual Conference, February 2012
The Extensible Markup Language (XML) has become a major player in data storage, exchange and archiving applications. The shift towards XML is also noticeable in the laboratory informatics community: XML is widely used as an exchange format. Also, upcoming XML-based standard formats such as the Analytical Information Markup Language (AnIML) provide sophisticated means of capturing experiment data.
This computer-based short course provides an introduction to XML and examines how it can be used in a laboratory environment. Using a healthy mix of theory and hands-on exercises, it helps provide guidance when it comes to evaluating XML applications in the laboratory.
