Training needs for biocuration

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 - 16:00

There is currently no recognised qualification in biocuration, either to provide new curators with a route for gaining the requisite skills to work within this field, or as a way for curators working in the field to gain recognition for the varied skill-sets that such a career provides them with. A GOBLET initiative, this workshop is intended to stimulate discussion on the training biocurators should have, and the role ISB, GOLBET and the community should have in defining the training needs and gaps, and set of competencies. We will work together to discuss this and other related questions, and propose concrete answers to advance biocuration training. This workshop will take place during the Biocuration 2016 meeting.
