Description We have improved and refined our curation/annotation practices for omics datasets, especially for metagenomics and metabolomics datasets.
Exploitation Route Curation/annotation practices are generally useful guidelines for the data scientists and other service providers in both academia and industrial settings.
Sectors Agriculture, Food and Drink,Digital/Communication/Information Technologies (including Software),Pharmaceuticals and Medical Biotechnology

 
Description Curation/annotation practices will increase effectiveness of data sharing and reuse. This and the follow-up UK-China partnership award have helped to consolidate data representation, curation and sharing, and improved the ISA and other tools that were used and interconnected during the hackathons.

Title ISA Model and Serialization 
Description The original ISA-Tab specification was published as a Release Candidate document in 2008, documenting the initial work that forms the ISA framework, with a further update in 2009. Since then, we have done work on a new serialization in JSON, ISA-JSON, and abstracted out the data model from both the tabular and JSON formats. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2016 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact Serialisations implemented by several ISA components; the documentation also helps other users to implement ISA formats. 
URL http://isa-tools.org/2016/10/release-of-the-isa-specs/
 
Title ISA Python API 
Description The ISA API aims to provide software developers with a set of tools to help you easily and quickly build your own ISA objects, validate, and convert between serializations of ISA-formatted datasets and other formats/schemas (e.g. SRA schemas). The ISA API is published on PyPI as the isatools package. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2017 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact The vision for the ISA API is to provide a programming library that will become the core for all software tooling that supports the ISA framework. It enables the import of various data formats into an implementation of the ISA Abstract Model as Python objects, and export of ISA content from Python objects back to different serialization formats. 
URL http://isa-tools.org/2017/01/isa-api-milestone/
 
Title ISA software suite (built iteratively, component by component) 
Description The open source ISA framework and tools help to manage an increasingly diverse set of life science, environmental and biomedical experiments that employing one or a combination of technologies. Built around the 'Investigation' (the project context), 'Study' (a unit of research) and 'Assay' (analytical measurement) data model and serializations (tabular, JSON and RDF), the ISA framework helps you to provide rich description of the experimental metadata (i.e. sample characteristics, technology and measurement types, sample-to-data relationships) so that the resulting data and discoveries are reproducible and reusable. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2010 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact Growing number of users, as listed at http://isacommons.org; but also of co-developers have and are contributing to the collaborative enhancements. 
URL http://isa-tools.org/
 
Title ISA tooling for the metabolomics community 
Description A new set of ISA software tools have been developed out of the EU H2020 PhenoMeNal: Large-Scale Computing for Medical Metabolomics project (http://phenomenal-h2020.eu/home). The ISA team has been contributing to the project since 2015, and has been collaborating on the development of user-facing, cloud-based data management and processing infrastructure in the project. The PhenoMeNal software includes a new set of ISA-related Galaxy workflow tools, as well as native support for the ISA-Tab format in Galaxy. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2018 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact The tools work with the EBI MetaboLights database as well as with ISA-Tab studies uploaded directly into the Galaxy platform, and builds on the Python ISA-API. The Metabolights' use of ISA-API: Python-based REST service relying on the ISA-API https://github.com/EBI-Metabolights/MtblsWS-Py 
URL http://isa-tools.org/2018/03/isa-galaxy-developed-for-metabolomics/
 
Title ISA-API Python library 
Description Project name: ISA-API Project home page: http://github.com/ISA-tools/isa-api Operating system(s): Platform independent Programming language: Python 3 Other requirements: None License: CPAL-1.0 ISA-API, a Python library that supports the creation, editing, parsing, and validatiation of both ISA-Tab and ISA-JSON formats, using a common data model implemented as native Python objects. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2018 
Open Source License? Yes  
Impact This provides users with a common interface and interoperable medium between the two ISA formats, as well as conversion to a set of other formats required for depositing data in public databases.

Results and Impact The first ISA hackathon - Bring Your Own Data Party, hold at the BGI-GigaScience office in Hong Kong delivered a new ISA-Tab viewing component for web browsers, and the conversion of Metabolights ISA-Tab content to RDF and 5 experiments, accounting for nearly 750 samples worth of data being generated. On top of boosting the data in Metabolights and GigaScience's GigaDB, some of these outputs are currently being written up as Data Note articles and peer reviewed by the GigaScience editorial team. The work also led to sharing and refining curation guidelines. Finally, efforts to deliver an API supporting the programmatic creation of ISA-Tab documents were started.
