“Towards a standardized cell migration data ecosystem ”

The second workshop of the Cell Migration Standardization Organization will be held in Galveston, Texas on the 27 th and 28 th of January 2017. Recent technological advances have transformed cell migration into a data-intensive field lacking intra- and inter-lab data management solutions, standardization and dissemination infrastructure. CMSO defines and implements community standards as a cornerstone infrastructure for the creation of a comprehensive, open and free data exchange ecosystem for cell migration.

The CMSO works on community standards for the field of cell migration in three working groups: Minimal Reporting Requirements, Controlled Vocabularies, and Standard Formats and Software APIs.

More detailed information can be found on this website (see links in header above).

Participation in the workshop is free for all attendees, but do note that participants will have to pay for their own transport and accommodation.
