The Turing Way https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/the-turing-way The Turing Way is a lightly opinionated guide to reproducible data science. Our goal is to provide all the information that researchers need at the start of their projects to ensure that they are easy to reproduce at the end. This also means making sure PhD students, postdocs, PIs, and funding teams know which parts of the “responsibility of reproducibility” they can affect, and what they should do to nudge data science to being more efficient, effective, and understandable.

    ELIXIR Webinar: Bioschemas - Improving interoperability of life science resources https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-webinar-bioschemas-improving-interoperability-of-life-science-resources This ELIXIR webinar will present the Bioschemas initiative that uses the schema.org markup to improve the discoverability of life science data and other resources. Bioschemas develops schema.org specifications for content relevant to life science research (dataset, gene, protein and many more) and encourages consistent use of the specifications to ease the consumption of the contained markup across many sites. This structured information then makes it easier to discover, collate, and analyse distributed data. The webinar will be presented by Alasdair Gray (Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK, ELIXIR UK), Chair of the Bioschemas Leadership team. More information will be available closer to the event. 2020-10-14 14:00:00 UTC 2020-10-14 14:00:00 UTC [] [] [] [] [] []
