ELIXIR Webinar: Mapping the landscape of Biocuration in ELIXIR

Wed 25 November 2020, 15:00

The webinar will present the results of the ELIXIR Implementation Study "Mapping the landscape of Biocuration in ELIXIR" run from December 2018 until May 2020.

The Implementation study aimed at:

  • Reviewing and mapping the type of curation work being done, for which databases across ELIXIR, and in which life science/health domains;
  • Identifying the tools curators are currently using for curation tasks;
  • Assessing the capacity requirements for new curators and training provision available;

The goal was to produce an initial map of (1) biocurators, (2) manually curated knowledgebases and data repositories, (3) curation tools and resources. 

The webinar was presented by Peter McQuilton (Oxford University, ELIXIR UK), and Alex Holinski (European Bioinformatics Institute, ELIXIR EMBL-EBI)
