The EMBRIC Configurator has been made available to the marine biotechnology community!
The service provides an entry point into the complex landscape of existing informatics data resources, especially around molecular biology. Targeting those embarking on the design of new marine projects, clients of the service provide a scientific description into an online form and, following several rounds of structured discussion and review involving input from informatics and scientific experts, are provided with a project-specific ‘configuration’. This configuration includes a description of the elements of infrastructure (such as databases, standards, formats, curation groups, analysis methods and cloud compute capacity), advice on accessing and setting these elements up for the project and data management guidelines.
How does it work?
