BBSRC/NSF/ERA-CAPS - Challenges and Opportunities in Plant Science Data Management

Across the plant sciences data of a varying types are being generated, analyzed and shared on a daily basis using a wide variety of tools, terminologies and formats. However, without mechanisms to encourage researchers to describe their materials, data, assays, and experimental procedures in an agreed manner it is almost impossible to discover and compare datasets. So how can we move from the current situation where most experiments are poorly described and datasets are infrequently deposited in repositories, to one where meaningful and understandable description and appropriate data deposition becomes commonplace? This workshop will showcase experts from across the globe working in the areas of data and experimental description; data identification and discovery; data integration and data citation will give presentations to stimulate discussion of research and strategic resource needs in this area. All are welcome to attend and participate!
