Ready for BioData Management?

Ready for BioData Management? is BioData.pt's capacity building program in data management for the life sciences.

Its goals are to empower researchers and institutions in managing their data more effectively and efficiently, and to promote best practices such as the FAIR data principles and machine-actionable Data Management Plans.

PHYLOViZ

PHYLOViZ allows phylogenetic inference and data visualization for large datasets of sequence based typing methods, including Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) and whole genome/core genome Multilocus Sequence Typing (wg/cgMLST) analysis.

PHYLOViZ is available as both a standalone tool and also as Web application/service.

PHYLOViZ is freely available at http://www.phyloviz.net, licensed under GPLv3.

Plant Data Hackathon

During the Barcelona all hands meeting we have committed to prepare a procedure and example on how to use Google Spreadsheets to record and standardise data in WP7. Our idea is to guide the ateendees in the procedure that we have devised, and enable them to work on their data using a tool (OntoMaton) to facilitate searching for terms in Bioportal Ontologies. The procedure attempts to provide standardisation to both column names and the data within their rows. This should facilitate the access to ISA-tools and to publishing standardised data sets in repositories.
