At present, marine genomic data is not adequately integrated into European and global data systems, partly due to the unavailability of user-friendly tools for reformatting sequence data output.
ANERIS will provide procedures that format sequencing data output according to Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A) and MIXS standards, enabling non-expert data managers to effectively contribute to European data aggregators.
Currently, MARGENODAT is exploring compatibility among data aggregators, and defining data standards.
Governmental Authorities: OBIS-UNESCO
Citizens, NGOs, associations: Taxonomic backbone (e.g. WoRMS)
Academia: EU projects (eDNA-Aquaplan) for the overview of the standards, other experts consultations
