Register of Antarctic Marine Species - AquaRES

  1. 1. RAMS: the Register of Antarctic Marine Species Bruno Danis, ULB
  2. 2. biodiversity.aq? • Born as Census of Antarctic Marine Life as the data, visualization and analysis component • Free and open access to biodiversity data: taxonomy and biogeography • SCAR-MarBIN => ANTABIF => biodiversity.aq projects • Science, conservation and management • Networked community developments David B, Danis B, Griffiths HJ
  3. 3. • Build an electronic ecosystem • Offer free and open access to data and technology • Expose all the (biodiversity) data and metadata, in multiple contexts • Remain community-driven, and collaborative • Adopt strong standardization • Work for science, conservation, management General philosophy
  4. 4. The first dynamic Register of Antarctic Marine Species Taxonomic backbone for many projects Board of 60 editors Citations for "Register of Antarctic Marine Species": 325 Cited publications: 20 H-Index: 9 RAMS: a subset of WoRMS 18,343 taxa 95% checked
  5. 5. Taxonomy: 18,343 accepted marine species; of which 17,398 checked (95%) Usage (since 2005-10-26): Total number of visitors: 1.269.812 Total hits: 10.454.194 Benefits from being a subset of WoRMS ! RAMS

  10. 10. • Integrate Antarctic microbial DNA sequence data in biodiversity.aq • Phased approach: Step 0: data description and discovery Step 1: microbial sequence and habitat metadata Step 2: sequence data Step 3: batch sequence data processing Step 4: customized sequence data processing mars.biodiversity.aq
