Bioschemas is an open community and welcomes any individual or organization willing to contribute to this community effort. Please see our joining page for details of how to get involved.
The governance process for the development of specifications in the Bioschemas community is depicted in the figure below. The community can iterate on the development of a profile. Once a new stable version is available, this can be passed to the leadership team for approval. Once approved it will appear as the next stable release with a unique version number.
The leadership team is:
- Carole Goble, University of Manchester, UK
- Alasdair Gray, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK
- Rafael C Jimenez, ELIXIR-Hub, UK
To see a complete list of contributors to the Bioschemas community, please view our People page.
Individuals are organized into groups, with each group being responsible for the development of at least one profile. For a list of groups please consult our Groups page.
If you are an organization using Bioschemas or willing to support Bioschemas please contact the Community group and let us know. We will be very happy to acknowledge your contribution and have your logo display on our website.
ELIXIR is creating an infrastructure that integrates research data from all corners of Europe and ensures a seamless service provision that is easily accessible to all. In this way, open access to these rapidly expanding and critical datasets will facilitate discoveries that benefit humankind.
The Pistoia Alliance is a global, not-for-profit alliance of life science companies, vendors, publishers and academic groups that work together to lower barriers to innovation in R&D, using pre-competitive collaboration to address issues around aggregating, accessing and sharing data that are essential to innovation, but provide little competitive advantage.
The Global Organization for Bioinformatics Learning, Education and Training (GOBLET) is a foundation whose mission is to provide a global, sustainable support and networking structure for bioinformatics trainers and trainees and facilitate capacity development in bioinformatics in all countries.
TeSS is ELIXIR's Training e-Support System, developed by ELIXIR-UK, for disseminating, discovering and packaging training resources, primarily by aggregating information from ELIXIR nodes, but also from various 3rd-party content providers.
FAIRSharing Information Resources are curated web-based searchable registries of linked information on content standards, databases, and data policies. Oringinally developed in the life sciences, broadly covering the biological, natural and biomedical sciences, it is now expanding across all disciplines.
The bioCADDIE (biomedical and healthCAre Data Discovery Index Ecosystem) team is involved in developing a data discovery index (DDI) prototype which will index data that are stored elsewhere and play an important role in promoting data integration.
BBMRI-ERIC develops and operates a pan-European distributed research infrastructure of biobanks and biomolecular resources in order to facilitate the access to resources as well as facilities and to support high quality biomolecular and medical research.
