Dear All,

Next week at the 18th Plenary of the Research Data Alliance, we will be co-hosting a Birds of a Feather Session with our colleagues from the Australian Microbiome Initiative, and the US Department of Energy's National Microbiome Data Collaborative (NMDC).

We'll be
  • Exploring challenges in making microbiome data FAIR at all stages from sample collection to data preservation, and getting informed on current efforts to address those challenges, and then we'll

  • Identify core, joint priority areas to tackle next, as a community

The session will be held online next Friday morning at 9:30-11:00am AEDT.

We encourage everyone to attend and join in these discussions, but registering for the plenary will be required.

Hope to see you there!
