Making microbiome data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR).
The FAIR Microbiome Implementation Network (IN) seeks to align and synergize the efforts of the NMDC with that of the GO FAIR community, leveraging the GO FAIR open and inclusive ecosystem of Implementation Networks for the microbiome research community (e.g., Chemistry IN, Metabolomics IN, Biodiversites INs). The purpose of the FAIR Microbiome IN is to work with microbiome research communities to:
- Formalize core and domain-specific microbiome ontologies that promote discovery and reuse, and
- Establish training on the NMDC data models that allow for broader dissemination of knowledge and compliance for both humans and machines.
