WEBINAR: KBase - A knowledge base for systems biology https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-kbase-a-knowledge-base-for-systems-biology-653d9753-989d-4194-9230-6e2d90652955 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘KBase - A knowledge base for systems biology’. This webinar took place on 22 September 2021. Event description  Developed for bench biologists and bioinformaticians, The Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) is a free, open source, software and data science platform designed to meet the grand challenge of systems biology: predicting and designing biological function. This webinar will provide an overview of the KBase mission and user community, as well as a tour of the online platform and basic functionality. You’ll learn how KBase can support your research: Upload data, run analysis tools (Apps), share your analysis with collaborators, and publish your data and reproducible workflows. We’ll highlight a brand new feature that enables users to link environment and measurement data to sequencing data. You’ll also find out how KBase supports findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) research by providing open, reproducible, shareable bioinformatics workflows. Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event.

MetaSat. An open, collaboratively-developed metadata toolkit to support the future of space exploration.

MetaSat is an open metadata toolkit for describing small satellite (and even large satellite) missions in a uniform and shareable way. Optimised for small satellite missions, MetaSat fills an informatics gap. Although there have been a number of relevant metadata sets, there has been a...

MetaSat. An open, collaboratively-developed metadata toolkit to support the future of space exploration. https://dresa.org.au/materials/metasat-an-open-collaboratively-developed-metadata-toolkit-to-support-the-future-of-space-exploration-49af7d4d-f0d1-4f95-9fbe-afbd45170a6a MetaSat is an open metadata toolkit for describing small satellite (and even large satellite) missions in a uniform and shareable way. Optimised for small satellite missions, MetaSat fills an informatics gap. Although there have been a number of relevant metadata sets, there has been a longstanding need for a vocabulary to span these community standards. A vocabulary to annotate the data and information outputs of these satellite missions, to enable search across disparate data repositories, and provide support for application of analytical services to retrieved datasets. A common problem among small satellite teams is finding information about how other small satellites were put together, what parts worked well, what weren't compatible, what were the mission goals and outcomes. A lot of this information can be found, but it's not usually described in a consistent and searchable way across projects. MetaSat helps by building a uniform language of description which can be embedded into small satellite databases and tools to connect information across projects. Although a relatively new vocabulary initiative, MetaSat has secured early adoption by SatNOGS, a global network of ground stations that collects, manages & enables access to satellite observations. Also partnering with NASA's Small Satellite Reliability Initiative, and in discussion with NASA concerning implementation of the vocabulary in other areas of its information infrastructure.

Time to fill the gaps: Building out a national training inventory https://dresa.org.au/materials/time-to-fill-the-gaps-building-out-a-national-training-inventory-cd4f10d8-83c0-4870-95e2-ee9ed4aa72c7   This community discussion seeks to bring together the instructors and facilitators tasked with upskilling researchers and support staff. While this collective dialogue among instructors is not new, what is new is the traction that various groups are getting. The newly formed group of eResearch support staff gathered by the Melbourne Data Analytics Platform (MDAP) and Sydney Informatics Hub (SIH) is one such group, as is the Lightweight Working Group (LWG): Researcher digital skills training data for enabling digital infrastructure use, spearheaded by University of Melbourne’s David Flanders during the pre-Skills Summit discussions. In this session we seek to build on the momentum, by including a hands-on working session. Participants are asked to come with information to share and questions they seek to answer. During the first half of this session, attendees will populate a public document with shareable training details. The goal is to at least double the size of the new cross-institutional national training collection started by the LWG. The second half of this session will be to ask questions to arrive at next steps. What do we need to do to continue building out this national training inventory and who will be in charge of maintaining and distributing the archive? What platforms exist and are used to capture training data and material and make it readily maintainable and findable? Can the material be reused and how do we recognise and capture re-use? Do we know about how to apply a license to our materials for appropriate reuse or do we need guidance? While there will likely be more questions than these, one question has been answered. When can we move from talking to doing? That time is now. contact@ardc.edu.au training inventory, training registry, national skills initiatives, training material
