CINECA webinar series - Bringing it all together: human cohort standards, tools and applications
The CINECA webinar series continues with a presentation by Dr Melanie Courtot, from the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR).

The ability to integrate and harmonise diverse, large human cohort data at scale promises exciting research perspectives and applications. This webinar provides a high-level introduction to some current standards for data representation and access, and tools leveraging them. Finally, we explore how modular assembly of tools and standards enables deployment of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) data and showcase applications that “bring it all together”.

The CINECA webinar series aims to discuss ways to address common challenges and share best practices in the field of cohort data analysis, as well as distribute CINECA project results. All CINECA webinars include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions and make suggestions. Please note that all webinars are recorded and available for posterior viewing.

Target audience:
• Researchers or scientists working with cohort data
• Service providers or research staff responsible for the (data) management of cohort data
