EVENT DETAILS

Researchers rely on acquiring external data to validate, benchmark and supplement research findings.

Funders require researchers to make their datasets accessible for further reuse.

The goal of this workshop is to bring to the fore existing challenges with genomic data access and reuse. We will introduce a number of tools and resources to simplify #dataaccess and #datasharing.


OBJECTIVES

1) Discuss current challenges in data sharing, focusing especially on researchers studying human genomic datasets.

2) Present a number of tools and resources for finding, accessing and sharing genomic data:

Repositive EGA (European Genome Phenome Archive)
dbGaP
GigaScience
Nature Scientific Data
Figshare

3) Discuss the best practices for using data to power hypothesis testing and maximising research impact.

This workshop is NOT about:

Data interpretation Data analysis
Tools for data analysis and interpretation
