Due to the rapid advance of high-throughput biotechnologies, a large amount of biological data is produced, including data about genome, transcriptome, proteome, metabolome, etc. The availability of big data leads towards better understanding of the molecular mechanisms, which can be further applied to translational or personalized medicine. However, to reach that goal, researchers have to overcome numerous challenges from data collection, to their storage, analyses, and interpretation.
What is data integrity? Why is data integrity important? What will the data be used for?
The IMGGE team had the opportunity to hear answers to these and many more questions on a virtual training “Importance and best practice for Data Integrity” organized by STREAMLINE partners from Cardiff University, United Kingdom. We thank Prof. Adrian Harwood and Dr. Janet Harwood for their excellent presentations and outstanding lectures.
