Standards is actively engaged in developing, implementing and/or promoting the following standards for computing and data interoperability:

  • Data Management Plans
  • Plant Sciences
    • MIAPPE (Minimum Information About a Plant Phenotyping Experiment) - a metadata standard that is key for enabling FAIR data in the plant phenotyping experiment domain, co-developed and adopted by's Woody Plants community
    • BrAPI (Plant Breeding API) - a RESTful APIfor automated access to plant breeding and phenotyping data, implemented by in Pheno



MIAPPE (Minimum Information About a Plant Phenotyping Experiment) is a metadata standard detailing which metadata must/may be provided and how they should be filled when describing plant phenotyping experiments, in order to enable the interpretation and reuse of the data. was a major contributor to the development of MIAPPE version 1.1, and particularly to the specification of its data model and ontology encoding.

It also contributed to the development of the following training materials:
