Next generation of data and model management services in Europe
FAIRDOM is a joint project of the ERA-Net ERASysAPP and the European Research Infrastructure ISBE, with the aim of establishing a data and model management service facility for systems biology. The prime mission of the project is to support researchers, students, trainers, funders and publishers by enabling systems biology projects to make their Data, Operating procedures and Models (DOM) Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR). Therefore, the heart of the project is the setting up of a central platform for the management, exchange and archiving of scientific data and models. Besides Switzerland, Great Britain, Germany and the Netherlands are also involved in the project.
FAIRDOM builds on the results of the successful SysMO-DB and SyBIT data management projects, uniting their tool and database development knowledge as well as their experience in serving large systems biology projects.
