Data formats
ISA-Tab The ISA-Tab format is designed to hold the metadata to describe one or more studies from a bioscience investigation, each containing one or more assays (of various kinds), to ensure that the descriptions and data from the various parts of that investigation remain robustly linked.
FuGE General model of biological experimentation. Can be used as is, or extended to provide a more specific model appropriate to the needs of a particular domain.

OBI Multi-domain ontology contributed to by a very broad range of biological, biomedical and relatedcommunities.

ISA Tools The components of the ISA Tool suite work both as stand-alone applications and as a unified system to assist in the local management and storage of experimental metadata, and to formats studies for submission to international public repositories.
CPAS "CPAS is a modular, open source science portal offering web-based bioinformatics and collaboration tools to help scientists store, analyze, and share data from high-throughput experiments and clinical trials."
