ISA-InterMine: accelerating and rewarding data sharing (360G-Wellcome-208381_Z_17_Z)

£670,410

<p>There is a growing recognition that research should be carried out in an open fashion, making data available early and in a reusable form to maximise worldwide research output. However, fulfilling this promise requires front-line researchers to comply with current data management standards as required by the data policies of funders and journals. These are additional burdens to research that will give them little immediate return.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Thus we propose to create a cloud-based, open-source, extensible data collection and presentation platform that will provide scientists with: (1) immediate reward for their annotation efforts through sharable data visualisation, integration outputs and exploration tools; (2) standardised web services to facilitate script-based data manipulation and analysis; (3) an easy-to-use pipeline for preparing their data for publication; (4) incentives to improve data quality, accessibility, and machine-actionability at the appropriate level of granularity; and (5) allow institutions and other parties to host the platform to ensure its availability and reliability.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>We will do this by building on the success and complementarity of the ISA tools suite (Oxford) and the InterMine platform (Cambridge) to make it quicker and easier to generate rich integrated dynamic web sites at single paper/lab scale up to consortium scale.</p>
