Brassica Information Portal Workshop
This informal workshop will allow the user community to test and evaluate the Brassica Information Portal.
About the event.
The Brassica Information Portal (BIP) is a repository for Brassica crop trait data. The concept of the portal is to allow the Brassica community to make their data publicly available and accessible. Our efforts with the ELIXIR standards community has meant that data entered into the repository will be done using controlled vocabulary and standardised data formats increasing the accessibility and reusability of community data.
Following recent developments to the BIP, we are looking to host an informal workshop to allow the user community to test and evaluate BIP’s different mechanisms for uploading Brassica trait and experimental population data. Users will also be able to contribute to future developments of the portal through feedback provided at the end of the workshop.
This will be a hands-on workshop where users will learn to submit an experimental plant population, including metadata on the plant background, using a simple Ruby tool. Following this, delegates will use the BIP interface to submit trial data, including trial set-up metadata and trait measurements.
Bring your own data “BYOD”
If you have your own data to be uploaded, you can bring it along and we will be happy to assist you with the upload. Please let us know as soon as possible, as some preparation is required for this.
You need to do several things:
- Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org with a short description of your dataset, trial and population information and your first draft of the trait definitions (see below).
- Define Traits. The CropOntology template can be found here: Trait Dictionary template v5 (TDv5). Don’t worry if it looks overwhelming. We will help to define the traits in time for the workshop
- Gather population and trial information. Please make sure you have all the compulsory information for population and trial submission. This information can be found here:
No previous programming experience is necessary.
