The SEEK platform is a web-based resource for sharing heterogeneous scientific research datasets, models or simulations, processes and research outcomes. It preserves associations between them, along with information about the people and organisations involved. The research can be organised into investigations, studies and assays (experiments) based on the ISA-Tools format. When paired with our openBIS platform it provides data management support from instrument collection through to publication. Norwegian users benefit from a functional integration with the NeLS Bioinformatics compute platform. An API simplifies upload and download of files.
The SEEK can be downloaded, installed, and managed locally as a solution to data sharing within groups and consortia. In addition, publicly released assets can be made available in the FAIRDOMHub.
OpenBIS is an open, distributed system for managing biological information. The main goal is to support biological research data workflows from the source (i.e. the measurement instruments) to facilitate the process of answering biological questions by means of cross-domain queries against raw data, processed data, knowledge resources and its corresponding metadata. When paired with our SEEK platform it provides data management support from instrument collection through to publication.
Rightfield is an open-source tool for adding ontology term selection to Excel spreadsheets. Rightfield is used by a ‘Template Creator’ to create semantically aware Excel spreadsheet templates. The Excel templates are then reused by Scientists to collect and annotate their data; without any need to understand, or even be aware of, Rightfield or the ontologies used. Rightfield embedded templates are used within the Samples framework of the SEEK.
