Image Data: data management, standard image file format for sharing big image data in the cloud, and image data repositories
3-day course organized by Global BioImaging brought together almost 50 participants from all over the world.
The instructors joined from Open Microscopy Environment (OME) team based at the University of Dundee, Scotland; EMBL-EBI at Cambridge, United Kingdom; and EMBL Heidelberg, Germany. The participants included directors of imaging core facilities, staff from imaging facilities including light and electron microscopy units, and biomedical imaging facilities as well as image analysts.
The course dived into OMERO data management software, image data repositories such as Image Data Resource (IDR), BioImage Archive, and Electron Microscopy Public Image Archive (EMPIAR), and a standard image file format for sharing big image data in the cloud. Workshops and lectures were recorded and the recordings will be hosted on Global BioImaging YouTube channel and displayed on Global BioImaging website.
