What is this about?
This workshop will provide an introduction to existing solutions and methods for registries across a variety of areas relevant to bioinformatics, such as Tools, Datasets, Standards, Events and Training. The workshop will provide a forum to discuss pro’s and con’s as well as general best practices when it comes to registries. It will also offer a hands on session on submission (content upload), dissemination (content pull) and visualisation. The final session will be a writing activity:participants and faculty will actually write based on the experiences through the day about: a review on existing registries, how to use registry information and next challenges.

Useful background terminology and concepts:
“… A registry is a list of items with pointers for where to find the items, like the index on a database table or the card catalog for a library. A repository stores the actual items, like a database table itself or a library’s shelves of books …” 
“… registries hold references to things and repositories hold the things …”
