This project will develop an understanding of the best strategies to leverage the significant data repositories that manage instrument data.
Australian Universities have invested significantly in shared scientific instruments, from light and electron microscopes (EM) to genomic sequencers and, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the amount of data generated by these instruments takes up a significant proportion of a Universities data storage infrastructure. Storing, managing, accessing, and processing this growing amount of data is a fundamental need and an immense challenge for individual researchers.
Who is this project for?
- Researchers who will use scoped scientific instruments or use data generated from the instruments
- Facility and data managers of scoped scientific instruments
- Funders who invest in scientific instruments
What does this project enable?
This project will enable an investigation into how existing instrument data repositories can be utalised to better serve the research community.
