The ChAMP project is focused on making it easy for the community to identify the important aspects of methods of chemical analysis. The project will develop a set of fields (metadata) that can be used to characterize methods such that groups and individuals in the area of chemical analysis can build standards applicable for their needs. In this way, we hope ChAMP will accelerate the semantic annotation and linking of analytical method data while making the underlying metadata uniform across applications.
This project needs lots of input from the community so it can truly cover all potential use cases, so we encourage you to get involved. Follow the progress of this project on the ChAMP website (http://champ-project.org) and tell us what you think/need for your application.
