"Establishing a node for FAIRifying metabolomics and phenomics data in the European Open Science Cloud" - joint workshop, 9th-10th March in Leiden, co-hosted by PhenoMeNal and the GO FAIR initiative led by Barend Mons, the former chairman of the European High-level group on the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The end of the workshop will mark…
PhenoMeNal is participating as one of the panelists at the  West-Life/iNEXT Strategy Forum that will be held on the occasion of the INSTRUCT biennial conference, on May 24th 2017. The event will be an opportunity to discuss topics such as the assessment of the services offered by current physical and electronic research infrastructures (RIs), the corresponding awareness…
  The German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure – de.NBI is a network of partners that provide bioinformatics services in different areas. Recently, Germany joined the European life-sciences infrastructure for biological information (ELIXIR) as a full member [1], and de.NBI is now busy establishing the German node in ELIXIR by providing high-quality bioinformatics services and training…
To identify the key needs of the clinicians from metabolomics point of view, PhenoMeNal has established a working group involving clinical metabolomics practitioners and members from the consortium. This working group will contribute views and suggestions on the kind and/or specifics of computational services needed to support the transition of metabolomics from clinical research towards clinical practice including advise…
EMBL-EBI, 14th-15th November 2016. EMBL-EBI is hosting a two day hackathon intended for the software developers in the consortium. Participants will engage in the establishment of PhenoMeNal testing at different levels including tool unit testing, container testing, workflow and infrastructure testing.
The PhenoMeNal Cloud Research Environment (CRE) portal provides an entry point to analysis tools via its open source "App Library" (Application Library) - a service catalogue of all applications (currently 24) that are currently available via Galaxy workflows through the CRE.  Each tool, available in the form of Docker container,  carries a tool description, usage instructions to be…
“A microservices architecture puts each element of functionality into a separate service” - in a presentation during the session “Emerging Methods and Practice”, at the OpenTox Euro 2016 conference, PhenoMeNal partner and work package leader, Ola Spjuth, talks about his work on microservices , Virtual research environments (VRE) and their implications including VRE’s in PhenoMeNal infrastructure. Interoperability and…
"Metabolic profiling can help us keep better track of individual health risks" - PhenoMeNal partner and work package leader, Prof Thomas Hankemeier talks about metabolomics, data privacy and sharing in his interview for the Leiden Centre of Data Science. To read more click here.
26th - 28th October 2016, Berlin. Are you participating in the 1st Conference of the European Association of Systems Medicine, Berlin? Listen to Marta Cascante from University of Barcelona, talk about metabolomic analysis and role of PhenoMeNal. For agenda and details, click here.    
PhenoMeNal has commissioned a survey to collect information on computational and storage requirements, as well as on some aspects of software usage for infrastructures managing metabolomics data. This information will help us  to produce an infrastructure that provides tools effectively useful to the community. We would be grateful if you could contribute to the survey by clicking on…
