Solutions for overcoming cohort data integration challenges using ontology: an introduction

Ontologies are collections of well-defined, hierarchical, controlled vocabulary, linked by logical relationships. This video introduces the concept and benefits of implementing ontologies for solving data integration issues when data is generated by different research groups.

WheatIS DataDiscovery webinar https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/wheatis-datadiscovery-webinar The [WheatIS project](http://www.wheatis.org/) aims at building an International Wheat Information System to support the wheat research community. The main objective is to provide a single-access web base system to access to the available data resources and bioinformatics tools. The project is endorsed by the [Wheat Initiative](https://www.wheatinitiative.org/). The [WheatIS DataDiscovery tool](https://urgi.versailles.inra.fr/wheatis/) allows to search data in all the wheat resources around the world. This Webinar described how to use the tool, what data are available, how to join, etc. The replay is available on [Youtube](https://youtu.be/FoVXBhO8arY).

Tools for data management planning

Having a data management plan is essential if we're to make the most of our own data and share it with others. Just like planning an experiment, we should plan what we are going to do with our data and how we are going to do it to ensure that we (and others) can use and re-use the data. If you...

Tools for data management planning https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/tools-for-data-management-planning Having a data management plan is essential if we're to make the most of our own data and share it with others. Just like planning an experiment, we should plan what we are going to do with our data and how we are going to do it to ensure that we (and others) can use and re-use the data. If you have never made a data management plan before the process may initially seem daunting, but fortunately there are many tools out there to help you think through the what, where, how, why and when of data management. In this webinar Sarah Jones from the Digital Curation Centre and Rob Hooft from ELIXIR Netherlands show us two tools - DMP online and the ELIXIR Data Stewardship Wizard - and explain how they can help you apply data management and FAIR data practices in your own research.

Giving data context, structure and meaning https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/giving-data-context-structure-and-meaning Metadata, standards and ontologies are common ways of providing data with context, structure and meaning. In this webinar Sira explores the idea of once data are ontologised (mapped to standard structured vocabulary), they become linkable to build a bigger infrastructure of knowledge network and provides a few scientific examples of how knowledge are drawn from linked data. She also provides a brief overview of tools that can be used to give data context, structure and meaning at different stages of the data lifecycle. metadata, Ontologies

Why share your data? https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/why-share-your-data Presented in two parts, this webinar will explore the value of sharing your data from an institutional and researcher perspective. Our first speaker, Ewan Birney, is one of the directors of EMBL-EBI. He speaks about how the growth in data over the past decade has changed the way that we approach biology and how EMBL-EBI provides some of the infrastructure to allow data sharing. He finishes up by highlighting the benefits of data sharing to the EMBL-EBI and shares his top four reasons for sharing data. Our second speaker, Elisabeth Busch, is the head of the Vertebrate Genetics and Genomics Group at the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the University of Cambridge. She tells us about her experiences in sharing her own research data, and the reasons that she felt compelled to share her data including the advantages for her own research.

An Introduction to Mathematical Modelling https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/an-introduction-to-mathematical-modelling This course provides an introduction to the concepts of modelling biological systems. It is intended for biologists who have no experience in modelling but would like to know how it might apply to their area of research. The course provides a complete background to the history of modelling and the different approaches through which a biological system can be approximated by mathematical methods. The course also provides a practical introduction to the [COPASI](http://copasi.org/) modelling environment.
