Botanik Seminar: The Diversity Workbench framework at the Leibniz Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change: From the collection object to FAIR data

Wednesday, 1. February 2023 - Wednesday, 1. February 2023

01.02.2023: Dr. Peter Grobe. Head of Biodiversity Informatics Leibniz Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change. Museum Koenig, Bonn, Germany.

Beginn: 16.15 Uhr; Größer Hörsaal des Botanischen Instituts | Start: 4.15 p.m.; Big lecture hall in the Botanical Institute, Menzinger Str. 67, 80638 München.

The Leibniz Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change is one of eight data centers in GFBio and NFDI4Biodiversity, which provides services in collection and research data management. At LIB, we explore the causal relationships of biodiversity loss. The information we deal with is from natural and cultural history collections, morphological and genetic analyses, surveys, environmental samples, and data flows from monitoring stations. This research is a holistic process in which all information is made available at all times to all relevant user groups, like project partners or the general public.

The diversity and volume of data continuously confronts us with new challenges, as the requirements for the information infrastructure are also constantly changing: from initial static web pages in the 1980s to database-supported dynamic web portals, highly linked and universally accessible computer actionable services are now necessary to make the information usable across disciplines for any questions and applications.
On the one hand, a well-structured and dynamically adaptable data infrastructure is important to meet this need; on the other hand, good networking with other stakeholders and data centers is a necessity for the successful provision of information according to the FAIR-Data principles, in order to keep the information accessible, comparable and understandable in the long term (more)
