As of now, 5 questions have been tagged with
formats and since bioinformatics in practice is 80%+ file format conversion, we can expect many more such questions!
I jest about the 80% bit...kind of...
Either way, it's important to get this tag right early on to set the appropriate tone. Just
formats strikes me as a bit vague, and my first thought was to replace it with
file-formats. But one could argue that this topic is relevant for converting data between different formats, even if the data is never stored in an actual file (such as in streaming processing). So perhaps
data-formats is a more accurate term?
I worry that the latter, while technically more accurate, might be a bit pedantic and a turn-off for newer members of the community.
Ok, I re-tagged 6 posts. Edits pending approval.
