Building infrastructure and service landscape

DataPLANT’s mission is service standing on the shoulders of giants. As such it relies on existing IT infrastructure and builds user-oriented services. DataPLANT wants to break the paradigm of “we are a --- mandated provider so you have to live with our tools where even IT experts get gray hair when submitting data” to “we understand that annotating data and providing metadata takes precious and we are in it together so let’s make this as easy as possible”.

Understanding ARC concept

DataPlant will allow users to store their data in form of an annotated research context. This includes not only the measurement data, but also (meta)data annotations, tools, and scripts. This will allow reproducibility plus to forward “raw data” and metadata slices to public repositories (e.g. EBI NCBI etc.).

Fundamental research in plant science

DataPlant is primarily geared towards the needs of fundamental plant research (e.g. those represented by the DFG categories 202-[01 evolution and systematics of plants and animals, 04 plant physiology, 05 plant biochemistry and biophysics, 06 plant cell and developmental biology, 07 plant genetics]. As such DataPlant is especially adapter to large scale data sets be it omics science or imaging and is ready to store petabaytes of annotated data.
