The Tomato Expression Database is the primary database for tomato microarray data (Fei et al. 2006). The database consists of three parts: (1) the tomato Microarray Data Warehouse, serving as the central repository for raw gene expression data and experimental descriptions in a "minimal information about a microarray experiment" (MIAME) compliant format; (2) the Tomato Microarray Expression Database, storing the processed experimental results from a number of fruit development time course experiments; and (3) the Tomato Digital Expression Database, which contains expression analysis derived from EST abundance in non-normalized libraries. The database stores the array definitions for the clone-based TOM1 microarray as well as the oligo-based TOM2 microarray.
