Implementing MIGS/MIMS: The Genomic Contextual

submitted by: dougramsey
The MIGS/MIMS checklist developed by the Genomic Standards Consortium (GSC) aims to enrich our ever growing data collection of genomic and metagenomic sequences. Therefore, the checklist defines what minimal list of contextual data attributes has to be added to the sequences in order to conform to the MIGS/MIMS specification. However, MIGS/MIMS itself does not specify how the contextual data should be documented; thus the GSC is developing the Genomic Contextual Data Markup Language (GCDML),...

Towards Computer Assisted Markup of Data: Habitat-Lite

submitted by: dougramsey
Lynette Hirschman, The MITRE Corporation Co-authors: Scott Mardis, Cheryl Clark, Kevin Cohen Habitat-Lite (aka EnvO-Lite) is a set of structured terms designed to facilitate capture of high-level information about habitat and sample source metadata for genomics and metagenomics samples. It is designed to be light-weight and compact. Habitat-Lite terms are drawn from the full EnvO ontology and are made avail able by the EnvO Consortium in the EnvO-Lite-GSC OBO file. Habitat-Lite terms include...
