Data Management

The data managers at the BioMicro center are responsible for the organization and storage of scientific data. We do this using NExtSEEK, a FAIR-compliant data management system, allowing for the data to be findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable, ensuring the quality of the metadata being stored. NextSEEK is one of the only FAIR-compliant storage systems and is built to handle a variety of types of scientific data types, a contrast to other commercial databases that are built for one specific data type. Currently, we are working with three different projects comprising of numerous different labs; the MIT SuperFund Research Program (SRP), the Metastasis Network (MetNet), and Impact TB. The data managers at the BioMicro Center work with researchers to submit data in real time, making the data deposition and submission for publication process as simple as possible.
