Abstract


THE MICRO B3 INFORMATION SYSTEM: MANAGING THE DATA FLOW OF THE OCEAN SAMPLING DAY

Molecular sequence data became an important and routine part of the scientific analysis of aquatic micro-organisms. Large-scale campaigns like the Tara Oceans, Malaspina and the Ocean Sampling Day lead to a wealth of data. Therefore, sophisticated data management, including the efficient processing of sequence data and the collation and organization of multidimensional contextual information is the key to ensure successful exploitation of these data to their full potential. The open source Micro B3 Information System (MB3-IS) provides numerous interoperable components for integrating and managing molecular- and environmental data from sampling to analysis and visualization. It is based on current state of the art technologies and standards in order to achieve maximum interoperability with other systems like European Nucleotide Archive, PANGAEA and SeaDataNet. MB3-IS is the central platform for the Ocean Sampling Day and efficiently manages data flow from early consistent digital metadata acquisition, analysing data with several bioinformatic pipelines for all domains of life and offering tools and services for biotechnological and ecological interpretation.
