“From Data Islands to Sharing Data in the Cloud: the Evolution of Data Integration in Biological Data Repositories”
Communications and Innovations Gazette (ComInG), vol. 1, no. 1, pp. 1–11, Jan. 2016.
Abstract: Biological data repositories were often data islands with unharmonized formats, models, and protocols. Their integration evolved along the years and sharing data in multi-tenant infrastructures is a reality now. In this article, we illustrate this evolution by presenting real-world cases from the bioinformatics area and collect the best practices and current trends that future solutions should observe from these examples. Finally, we situate the platform being created by the BiobankCloud project in the scenario of integrating biological data.
