Getting Started with Bioschemas
A quick tour on what this training portal offers
Bioschemas aims to improve findability and interoperability for Life Science resources. It does so by guiding the use of Schema.org markup on Life Science websites. Guidelines include recommendations on the properties to be used together with the cardinality, ONE or MANY. It also offers recommendation on some well-known ontology terms for some particular properties. All those recommendations are what we call a “Bioschemas Profile”. Bioschemas also leads the development and posterior inclusion in Schema.org of some common types used in Life Sciences, i.e., Bioschemas types.
If what we just said is not so clear to you yet, do not worry about it; this training portal is here to help you understand how to use Bioschemas Types and Profiles. Find below the right place to start with.
