New Repositories for New Biodiversity Research

Resources and Videos

Recent technology-driven advances in biodiversity research have created a need for more, new types of FAIR repositories. In this meetup, we discuss two of these. Firstly, the broad and expanding application of AI-based methods in image/sound/text/sequence classification has created a need for repositories for exchanging pre-trained models and their training data. Secondly, the advent of massively parallel DNA sequencing techniques applied to the environment has shown a large diversity of sequence variants, whose incremental aggregation in a central repository would enable a more fine-grained assessment of the presence and abundance of distinct haplotypes in the natural environment and in medical settings. In this event, we will introduce the current research practices and challenges and discuss how the community can proceed in light of these developments.

This virtual workshop will take place from 11:00-12:00 CEST on June 13 2024. The agenda will be added shortly.
