AlgaeTraits: a trait database for (European) seaweeds

Belgium
Training Center

The amazing diversity of seaweeds is reflected in the ecological and morphological characteristics of the various species. Seaweed traits and functional forms have therefore long been used as a tool to answer various ecological and evolutionary questions. AlgaeTraits (https://algaetraits.org/) provides standardized trait information for all European seaweeds, enabling the use of trait-based approaches over broad taxonomic, spatial and temporal scales. AlgaeTraits is a thematic subregister of the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) (https://marinespecies.org/) which links to AlgaeBase (https://www.algaebase.org/), the most complete database on global algal taxonomic information.

Through the online AlgaeTraits portal, editors have access to the Aphia platform (the database behind WoRMS) to add new traits and related non-taxonomic information, and to make changes to already existing records. With this course, the AlgaeTraits editors will become more at ease with the online AlgaeTraits editing interface and will learn how to use the available functionalities and tools to standardize their actions and improve the AlgaeTraits and WoRMS databases.

Data management and publication through the Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN)

GGBN_2022

Data management and publication through the Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN)

Colombia
Training Center

The training course provides an introduction to (genetic) data management and publication through the Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN), as well as an introduction to the GGBN and the use of its data portal, the data standards and several case studies from Latin American institutions that have published data from different types of collections through the GGBN. The course purpose is to give the necessary foundations to professionals from Latin America to use the GGBN data infrastructure for publishing and giving visibility to the information they preserve.

PacMAN eDNA 2022

Marine Invasive Species Early Detection: Utilising Molecular Tools

Belgium, Pacific
Training Center

This training course will provide and introduction to sample collection and sorting, including taxonomy and processing for DNA extraction, eDNA and qPCR analyses, as well as a quick guide on the use of the bioinformatics for sequence analysis to in-country (Fiji) managers and technical staff.


World Register of Marine Species (for editors)

WoRMS_Editors

World Register of Marine Species (for editors)

Belgium
Training Center

The overall objective is to familiarize Aphia/WoRMS editors with the functionalities of the online editing platform, and the guidelines on how to enter specific information into the database. Aphia/WoRMS editors will gain (a better) understanding of WoRMS and the Aphia platform and will be able to add and adjust taxa, attributes, distributions, etc through the online editing interface of the WoRMS website. Attendance by invitation only.

Publicación y gestión de datos de biodiversidad marina (The Ocean Biodiversity Information System - OBIS)

Colombia
Training Center

Construir un conocimiento básico de los datos de la biodiversidad marina a través de OBIS para introducir los estándares y formatos de datos para la publicación (IPT), el procesamiento, el acceso, el análisis y la visualización.

Contributing datasets to EMODnet Biology

EMODnetBiology_2020

Contributing datasets to EMODnet Biology

Belgium
Training Center

Training originally set up for EMODnet Biology Partners (June 2020). During the Summer of 2020, this training course was opened up for self-enrolment, allowing all scientists & data managers access to its content. This way, they can use the available material to learn how to format, standardize and quality control their biological data for submission to e.g. the European node of the Ocean Biodiversity Information System (EurOBIS) or any other node within the OBIS network.
