WEBINAR AND PANEL DISCUSSION: Sustainability of biodata resources https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-and-panel-discussion-sustainability-of-biodata-resources-55c612d7-08ea-4d9a-a1fa-6816067048d1 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar and panel discussion ‘Sustainability of biodata resources’. This event took place on 8 March 2023. Event description  Environmental, agricultural and biomedical research is dependent on the availability of high quality data that is made available through biodata resources and databases hosted locally, nationally and internationally. The reality is that funding for development, maintenance and sustainability of biodata resources is often short-term and piecemeal leaving the resources that life scientists depend on in a precarious position. The Global Biodata Coalition was formed in response to this challenge to provide a forum for research funders and others around the globe to better coordinate and share approaches for the efficient management and growth of biodata resources worldwide. In this extended webinar we discuss the theme of development and sustainability of biodata resources with a panel of guests. We’ll hear about the goals and activities of the Global Biodata Coalition and the challenges faced by well established and highly curated Australian and international data resources (Stemformatics, Community for Antimicrobial Drug Discovery (CO-ADD) Database and InnateDB) in sustaining these resources. The presentations and panel discussion will be followed by questions from the audience.

The presentation highlights: - Digital workforce capacity and COVID19: the importance of digital skills, the need for shared access to open data, software and code, and the shortfall in skills to enable a comprehensive response to such emergencies - The ongoing need for a digital skilled workforce for data-intensive science - Five focus areas in the report include: 1. Enablers for digital workforce capacity development 2. Defining needs: digital skills, frameworks and roles 3. Provision of training 4. Community development 5.
