Over 50 collaborators at 30 different biomedical institutions around the world have come together to form ISA Commons, a community that uses the ISA metadata tracking framework to support standardizing data sets in the life sciences so that these data sets can be shared. A group of participants outlines the case for interoperable data sets and the ISA Commons in a commentary in the February issue of Nature Genetics. Here in the Graff Library, we are interested in learning what our role might be in helping City of Hope investigators manage their data. If you have any thoughts on that issue, please leave a comment or contact us.
