Microbiome research has grown substantially and produced massive data over the past decade in terms of the range of biomes sampled, facing challenges in terms of data findability, accessibility, interoperability and reuse.
ELIXIR, the European Infrastructure for Biological Data, is addressing these topics via domain-specific communities, namely via its emerging Microbiome Community.
BioData.pt, as the Portuguese Node of ELIXIR, is assembling its National Community to engage Portuguese researchers on this topic in this European effort.
The Portuguese Microbiome Community, led by Isabel Gordo, from Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, is organizing its first National Summit to raise awareness and gather scientists addressing microbiome research in Portugal.
If you are one of these, join us in the Summit and in this new community!
The deadline for abstract submission (posters) is 5th January. Posters will be presented through a pre-recorded 2-minutes video on the respective sessions and abstract submission is made through the general registration form.
Registration is free, but mandatory with limited places. Registration deadline is 28th January. For more information contact [email protected].
