The EU-funded project PhenoMeNal has created a survey to gain insight in the infrastructure needs of metabolomics researchers. The survey is intended for all participants in data-intensive metabolomics research. It should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete.
The PhenoMeNal project aims to develop an open-source e-infrastructure for metabolomics research. DTL partner Leiden University is one of PhenoMeNal’s 13 international partners. The project is closely linked with ELIXIR, e.g., ELIXIR-NL’s Head of Node Barend Mons participates in the Scientific Advisory Board of PhenoMeNal.
The main goal of the project is to develop and deploy the PhenoMeNal Gateway: an e-infrastructure that will make it possible to analyse large-scale metabolomic and genomic data, improving our ability to detect, treat and manage disease. The data will adhere to the FAIR data concept that all data should be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.
The survey is an important step towards understanding the community’s data infrastructure needs. It is intended for all participants in data-intensive metabolomics research – from clinical practitioners and biologists, to data managers and curators, to software engineers and infrastructure architects. It deals with current practices, future needs, and opinions. In addition, there are questions on how you manage your metabolomics research data. The results of the survey will be fed back to the whole metabolomics community.
