On Monday Jan. 14, 11AM ET / 5PM CET, we will continue the dbcatalog /  
dataset description work with a presentation from Alasdair Gray where we  
will discuss http://www.openphacts.org/specs/datadesc/ .

It looks like Chisato Yamasaki will be able to join us as well! This  
dataset description theme is related to ongoing work from the dbcatalog  
group of the Biohackathon 2011 in Kyoto.

Dataset Descriptions in the Open PHACTS Project

Abstract
Alice: "What version of ChEMBL are we using?"
Bob: "Er…let me check. It's going to take a while, I'll get back to you."
This simple question took us the best part of a month to resolve and  
involved several individuals. Knowing the provenance of your data is  
essential, especially when using large complex systems that process  
multiple datasets.

The underlying issues of this simple question motivated us to improve the  
provenance data in the Open PHACTS project.  We developed a guideline for  
dataset descriptions where the metadata is carried with the data. In this  
talk I will highlight the challenges we faced and give an overview of our  
metadata guidelines.


Bio
Alasdair is a researcher in the MyGrid team at the University of  
Manchester. He is currently working on the Open PHACTS project which is  
building an Open Pharmacological Space to integrate drug discovery data.  
Alasdair gained his PhD from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. He has  
spent the last 10 years working on novel knowledge management projects  
investigating issues of relating data sets.
