Literature – Data Integration

10–11 December 2013

Wellcome Genome Campus, UK


Increasingly, biological science is being driven by big data – in terms of both consumption and generation. While most core data types are served by structured public databases, there is a growing trend in the generation of unstructured datasets that do not fit these models. The aim of this meeting was to discuss how journals, structured databases, and emerging systems for managing unstructured datasets engage to provide the most useful information landscape in support of scientific research. New developments and perspectives on this theme were presented by journal publishers/editors and established and emerging database managers. Potential working practices and synergies between these data resources were also explored.
