Common database for marine organisms

The overall objective of this work package is to build a common database for marine organisms, cell lines and molecular resources for which access is offered by the ASSEMBLE consortium.

The main steps will be to: 

  • identify and develop local data-bases to a common level across the consortium;
  • harmonise and network this information according to resource type.

In an operational context, we envisage a three-tier system with

(1) local databases hosted by each partner (specific to the biological resource(s) maintained and representing the day-to-day point of data input and management) 

(2) a centralised data-base which will harvest data from the distributed sites

(3) this ASSEMBLE web site where the database will be presented in a standardised format.
