Data Ecosystem

The Data Ecosystem working group coordinates among IHEC members to define methods and standards for the sharing of raw and processed data.

We work to promote data discovery and harmonise approaches for data access using technologies such as TrackHubs and the IHEC Data Portal. We seek to enable integrative analysis though the promotion of the IHEC standards.
