The registration is now open for attendance and presentation of a poster for the Beilstein Symposium “Open Science and the Chemistry Lab of the Future”.
This conference provides research scientists, data scientists, publishers, funders and other interested parties a platform to critically review their needs and concerns for sharing and reusing the results of scientific research and to discuss the consequences for the future developing of a data driven lab and new infrastructures required.
In an interview with the Beilstein Magazine, Dr. Tchavdar Todorov from the Queen’sUniversity Belfast explains why it is important to include aspects of research integrity in the education of students, PhD students and even postdocs, and how to overcome the daily challenges that may threaten integrity in research.
Can you go racing with molecules? How do you build the smallest switch in the world that can be switched with light? And what is a scanning tunneling microscope? Our tutorials with Niklas are aimed at everyone interested in nanotechnology, organic chemistry and related sciences.
The STRENDA Commission proudly announces the release of STRENDA DB in version 1.0 for general use. STRENDA DB is an electronic validation and storage system for functional enzyme data that incorporates the STRENDA Guidelines in a user-friendly, web-based system.
STRENDA DB provides authors with a validation service that ensures that their manuscript data are complete and valid before they submit them as part of a publication to a journal. A successful formal compliance is confirmed by the awarding of a STRENDA Registry Number (SRN) and documented in a fact sheet (PDF) containing all input data that can be submitted with the manuscript to the journal. In addition, each dataset is assigned a DOI that allows referring and tracking the use of data.
The data become publicly available in the database only after the corresponding article has been peer-reviewed and published in a journal.
The three-year funding period has been completed successfully: With a smile in one eye and a tear in the other, the second generation of Beilstein scholars said goodbye on 13 December 2016. The scholars presented the results of their mostly completed research projects and initiated many inspiring discussions.
The STRENDA Guidelines recently became part of the collection of FAIRDOM community standards applied in systems biology to make Data, Operating procedures and Models (DOM) Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR).
FAIRDOM is a joint action of ERA-Net ERASysAPP and European Research Infrastructure ISBE to establish a data and model management service facility for Systems Biology. This project is based on the experiences made with SysMo-DB and SyBIT data management projects which serve large systems biology related projects with tools and database developments.
