Standards

Description: 

Data-driven science is generating biological data at unprecedented rates. To make the information sequestered in the accumulating data accessible to the community, and to represent it such that it can be translated to knowledge, requires the development of rigorous data-stewardship practices and deployment of training. Data science is an emerging field, and training programmes are just being established. Best practices in data curation and in data-science training need to be established.

This is the group of people that care for standards in training and for training!

Vision
To create awareness and apply standards across bioinformatics training and foster best practices in relevant fields such as biocuration, data-sciences and academic software production.

  1. STANDARDS: Training Materials Descriptors

    The Standards Committee has been working on developing Training Materials Descriptors together with Bioschemas.

    Here http://bit.ly/2ksgKCT you can find the specification for describing training materials in life sciences proposed by the Bioschemas group: https://github.com/BioSchemas

    Here the consensus reached by GOBLET for descriptors of Training materials: http://bit.ly/2ksrbpP

  1. Standards Pool of Experts

    The GOBLET Standards Committee also works closely with a pool of experts who are keen on the activities in standards from GOBLET but unable to commit for the regular meetings and activities in the committee, or represent specific initiatives relevant to standards the committee wants to liaise with. Currently the pool of experts include:
