In Cytomics environment, scientist has to continuosly deal with a large volume of structured and unstructured data, this condition in particular, makes a challenge the interoperability for any platform developed for cytomics. CytomicsDB approach is an effort for developing a framework which takes care of the standardization of the unstructured data, providing a common data model layer for HTS experiments. This model as well is suitable for the integration with other systems in Cytomics, in special other repositories, which allow the validation of key metadata used in the experiments, thus ensure reliability of the data stored. Other possible solutions for cytomics data management, should take special care in the use of data model standards for enhancing the collaboration and data sharing in the scientific community.
