  • Mars intro

    1. 1. Welcome to MARS Microbial Antarctic Resource System
    2. 2. Welcome to MARS Microbial Antarctic Resource System
    3. 3. Logistics• WiFi login/pass• Coffee• Food• Toilets
    4. 4. Why are we here?• ANTABIF: Antarctic Biodiversity Information Facility• IPY: International Polar Year• CAML: Census of Antarctic Marine Life• CCAMBIO: Climate Change and Antarctic Microbial Biodiversity• Try to design an integrated information system for Antarctic microbes
    5. 5. Proposed approach• 1st day to capture needs and ideas• Interactive• Speakup• Hands-on• Virtual participants• Interdisciplinary
    6. 6. Challenges• Different levels of data processing on different data sets• Different regions of the same gene (16S rRNA or 18S rRNA) that are not comparable or alignable vs. nearly full length gene sequences generated in the past.• Different levels of sequencing effort• Different sequencing technologies• Providing raw/semi processed data AND the processed data that publications are built on.• Can consider how ICoMM dealt with this for short-read pyrosequencing data; there are ~ 20 Southern Ocean data sets there in FASTA format and processed format
    7. 7. ChallengeTo unify data from different biodiversity domains
    8. 8. Expected outcomes• scope MARS• identify prioritized requirements for MARS• reality check: identification of technology and standards• identification of stakeholders• recommendations (white paper)• organize SCAR OSC meeting
    9. 9. Today• Intro presentations• Discussions• Examination of actual data• Identification of your needs• Identification of your priorities• (broad) scoping and requirements for MARS
    10. 10. Rest of the week• Open• Focused groups, hands-on• Agile, iterative workflow• Input always welcome• Communication @biodiversityaq
