Abstract Bioinformatics digital data are growing exponentially. They need to be stored, organized, retrieved, visualized, annotated, analyzed, integrated with experimental metadata, integrated with other various datatypes, and archived. These steps require a scientific team that consists of bench scientists, data engineers, bioinformaticians,…

A key to understanding KRAS-driven cancers and the role of mutant RAS proteins and to discover new therapeutic possibilities is to better understand how RAS behaves on the cell membrane. Investigating RAS in the context of membranes is somewhat challenging using conventional computational or experimental techniques. In a partnership with…

Meta tags are used on web pages. Metadata is added to photographs. Both help people find, use, and reuse these digital assets. Scientists say the same is needed for image data in biology, and urgently so. “A single imaging data set could be a thousand images,” said Frederick National Laboratory imaging scientist Kedar Narayan. “Someone might…
