ready Investigation Study Assay JSON

Abbreviation: ISA-JSON

General Information
Investigation Study Assay JSON (ISA-JSON) describes the ISA Abstract Model reference implementation specified using the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format, a text format for serializing structured data. The ISA model consists of three core entities to capture experimental metadata: investigation, study and assay. The extensible, hierarchical structure of this model enables the representation of studies employing one or a combination of technologies, focusing on the description of its experimental metadata (i.e. sample characteristics, technology and measurement types, sample-to-data relationships).

Collaborative Open Plant Omics
COPO is a portal for plant scientists to describe, store and retrieve data more easily, using community standards and public repositories that enable the open sharing of results. COPO can link your outputs to your ORCiD profile. By tracking unique identifiers and DOIs, COPO can provide a way to monitor usage and get credit for your work, such as source code or research data, which still are not typically cited in the majority of scientific papers. COPO Wizards allow metadata to be added to your research objects with guided help and natural workflows. COPO can suggest metadata that might be appropriate for your data based on past submissions and similar workflows.
