BioData.pt | ELIXIR-PT is setting a national microbiome community to align with ELIXIR's mission.
About this Event
Microbiome research has grown substantially and produced massive data over the past decade in terms of the range of biomes sampled, facing challenges in terms of data findability, accessibility, interoperability and reuse.
ELIXIR, the European Infrastructure for Biological Data, is addressing these topics via domain-specific communities, namely via its Microbiome Community.
BioData.pt, as the Portuguese Node of ELIXIR, is assembling its National Community to engage Portuguese researchers on this topic in this European effort.
The Portuguese Microbiome Community, led by Isabel Gordo, from Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, is organizing its first National Summit to raise awareness and gather scientists addressing microbiome research in Portugal.
If you are one of these, join us in the Summit and in this new community.
Abstract submission (posters): 5th January
Registration (free but mandatory, limited places): 28th January
