For more casual use, it is recommended that submitters upload a completed Tab2MAGE spreadsheet alongside their data files, and the ArrayExpress curators will process it for you.

Submitters wishing to set up a MAGE-ML pipeline to ArrayExpress should contact the to discuss their requirements, and read this web page: Instructions for submitters of MAGE-ML.
