NFDI4Microbiota will apply for funding in October 2020.
The vision of the NFDI4Microbiota consortium is that researchers in microbiology (including bacteriology, virology, protistology, mycology and parasitology) can translate omics data easily into a deep understanding of microbial species and their interactions on a molecular level.
The mission of the NFDI4Microbiota consortium is to be the central hub in Germany for supporting the microbiology community with access to data, analysis services, data/metadata standards and training.
The aims and objectives of NFDI4Microbiota are:
- Making omics data related to microbial species and diverse microbiomes FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable).
- Making the analysis of such data accessible, consistent and reproducible by offering automated data processing systems.
- Promoting data sharing and re-use.
