Data formats

The PAZAR GFF format

PAZAR GFF format is intended to capture simple annotations. It is not meant to record a detailed annotation. Please use the PAZAR XML format if you want more options.

The PAZAR XML format

To ease the insertion of data into the database, we have designed an XML exchange format that can be used to format already existing datasets. The PAZAR Document Type Definition (DTD) is now available as well as a documentation explaining its use.

The PAZAR TF - Target Gene format

This is a simple delimited format for providing information about Transcription Factors and their target genes

The PAZAR ChIP-Seq Peak format

Captures ChIP-Seq peak data in a simple delimited format



To make data from PAZAR programmatically accessible, we provide an API in the perl programming language.
