Data Management for Data Science at The Jackson Laboratory

Research data are usually collected with a specific question in mind and are thus most often managed and stored in a manner that makes reuse difficult or impossible. At the same time, the world is seeing an explosion of new statistical and computational methodologies that can extract meaning from extremely large datasets. The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) aims to fully leverage these advances by improving our stewardship of research data—our goal is to make our data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable). By incorporating our diverse research data into a FAIR-compliant management framework, we will create new opportunities for data scientists to apply data-mining and machine-learning algorithms to our rich data resources. In this presentation, I will discuss JAX’s overall vision of Data Management for Data Science, describe our plans for implementation and progress, and present specific use-cases for how we expect researchers to interact with our data in the future.
