Introduction to Research Metadata and the GHGA Metadata Model

13 Dec 2022

Metadata - everyone has heard the term, but what does it actually mean? And why are metadata important for research and data analysis? Answers to these questions will be given in the first part of this webinar. In the intro session we will also talk about the FAIR principles and why we need them, and give you some online resources to dive deeper into this topic.

The second part focuses on the GHGA metadata model that will be implemented for our services. We will explain what it contains (and what it doesn’t include) and how we arrived there - and what might change in the future.

FAIR in Biomedical Research

16 Feb 2023

Biomedical research, like any academic discipline, can greatly benefit from the wealth of data that is available worldwide - but only if this data can be found, accessed, used and reproduced - hence if the data is FAIR.

In this webinar, we will give you an introduction to what FAIR data means in biomedical research and patient care, then dive deeper and specifically look at how imaging and OMICS data can be FAIR. In the second part of the seminar, we will highlight challenges in the field, such as why Metadata is not yet FAIR, how to choose the right model and the role of semantic web.

The seminar was given by GHGA experts Sven Nahnsen (Director of the Center of Quantitative Biology, University of Tübingen) and Sven Fillinger (Team Lead of IT Infrastructure and Scientific Software, University of Tübingen).
