NFDI4Microbiota event: Workshop on meta-data and FAIR principles

PILOT project leader Tom Clavel is also a member of the NFDI4Microbiota consortium, which is hosting a workshop on (meta)data and FAIR principles. PILOT members - and other interested scientists - are welcome to attend. (There are only 20 places available; they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.)

Confused about FAIR, ontologies, and metadata and how they can help you and your project?
Join our hands-on workshop about description of biological data.
16-17 October in Aachen. Register by 20 September:

For our workshop: How to describe biological data? A primer to a FAIR approach for now and the future

We are looking for:

  1. Person with knowledge about microbiology
  2. Late-stage (wet lab) researchers with datasets that are in preparation to be submitted to repositories
  3. Early-stage researchers that will be generating large data sets
  4. Researchers having difficulties to apply existing ontologies and metadata fields to their data set
  5. Data stewards or broker responsible for submitting data

You will learn how to use terms based on existing ontologies and controlled vocabulary.

Your engagement and continuous use of these terms will help to increase future machine-actionable analyses.

After the workshop, you will have successfully described your own datasets and prepared the necessary metadata for future deposition of your described datasets.

But beware during this workshop, we will not (yet [1])…

  1. upload or publish your data
  2. analyze/ re-analyze your data
  3. develop an ontology
  4. set-up an automatic transfer of your metadata to repositories
