in development National Microbiome Data Collaborative


General Information
The National Microbiome Data Collaborative seeks to address fundamental roadblocks in microbiome data science and gaps in transdisciplinary collaboration. The NMDC's Phase I Pilot was launched in July 2019 funded by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science, Biological and Environmental Research program, with two strategic priorities — infrastructure and engagement. The infrastructure goal is to democratize microbiome data science by providing access to multidisciplinary, multi-omics data (e.g., metagenomics and metaproteomics) through distributed data resources, with seamless integration to platforms that support reproducible, cross- study analyses. The engagement goal is to enable community-driven shared ownership of microbiome data that supports open science across research teams, funders, publishers, and societies. Currently, no data are available, as this project is still in the development stage. Please sign up for our Quarterly newsletter via the website (starting in Sep 2020) for updates, feature releases, and ways to get involved.
