Enabling FAIR plant phenotyping data submission through the Breeding API

BioData.pt | ELIXIR PT, together with the Belgian, Dutch, and French ELIXIR Nodes, is carrying out a project to develop standardized user-friendly web interfaces to submit MIAPPE-compliant datasets to BrAPI end-points or to repositories which can exchange data with BrAPI end-points. 

MIAPPE is a standard for plant phenotyping that defines the list of attributes necessary to fully describe a phenotyping experiment, and BrAPI is a communication standard for exchanging MIAPPE-compliant data.

The objective is to create a modular interface containing an interactive web form for metadata entry mirroring the organization of MIAPPE, web services for key functionalities such as ontology lookup and validation of MIAPPE compliance, and modules for database entry that upload the data to a database so that plant scientists can adopt and benefit from the data management framework put together by the ELIXIR Plant Sciences Community.

This work is occurring in the frame of Enabling FAIR plant phenotyping data submission through the Breeding API ELIXIR Staff Exchange Programme, led by BioData.pt.
