Registries Focus Group

ELIXIR are currently listing more than 300 services and resources, some of which are listings of other services, resources, digital objects - loosely termed as ‘registries’. It is crucial that querying of these listings is done in the most effective way and is fit-for-purpose for down-stream processing. Often, the querying of one use case may be performed on multiple registries. At the moment, connecting the resources and registries to allow content collection by a specific use case is done in an ad-hoc way at best. Interoperability between registries is a gap and an opportunity for increasing effectiveness of the ELIXIR operations as well as ELIXIR users and increases the value of the collaboration within ELIXIR.

Goals

  • To identify and implement a framework of best practice(s) that will allow the different listing/cataloging/registry resources within the ELIXIR network to exchange information harmoniously. This may include suggestions for standards in the development of resources, practice of sharable process, and other interoperability-aiding elements that are fit-for-purpose (i.e., if you want to perform [X], use [Y]).
  • This group focuses on the “ELIXIR Registries” by the remit of ELIXIR resources (owned by member Nodes and indicated in their Service Delivery Plans or other ELIXIR Collaboration Agreements).
