Provides extensible data infrastructure for genotype and phenotype experiments. XGAP includes an object model for genotype and phenotype data (XGAP-OM), a simple file format to exchange data using this model (XGAP-TAB) and easy-to-customize database software (XGAP-DB). The data format can be used to represent and exchange all raw, intermediate and result data associated with an investigation. It can be easily customized into variants to suit local experimental models.
