Event description

Description

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.

Scientific Organiser (Program/Faculty selection):

Rafael Jimenez, ELIXIR Chief Technical Officer, ELIXIR Hub

Sonika Tyagi, Head of EMBL-ABR: AGRF node, AGRF

Vicky Schneider, Deputy Director EMBL-ABR

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 …” [1]

“… registries hold references to things and repositories hold the things …” [2]
