Our entries for the two records which the 4DX group is associated with can be found here:
http://biosharing.org/bsg-000006 (BILA - Bilateria anatomy)
http://biosharing.org/bsg-000013 (PD_ST - Platynereis Developmental STage)
The BILA ontology is currently listed as inactive on its OBO Foundry page at http://obofoundry.org/cgi-bin/detail.cgi?id=bilateria_mrca, and the Platynereis is listed as under discussion (http://www.obofoundry.org/cgi-bin/detail.cgi?id=platynereis_stage_ontology). Neither are listed at all under BioPortal (http://bioportal.bioontology.org/).
Can anyone confirm with me if this ontology is no longer currently in development and you believe deprecation of this record within BioSharing would be appropriate? Is anyone using these ontologies? please share with anyone you might think knows something about this :)
We do enjoy keeping our records up to date, and any help with this matter would be most appreciated. Thanks!
Very interesting user experience when trying to browse a few entries from the NAR database issue. As I've just started at BioSharing.org, it makes me think - just what would you all want in a standards and database registry? What would make you give full points to any particular entry? Yes, working URLs are a big thing, but what would the killer feature be for you? Examples, high numbers of cross references, contact points for owners of the entries? Please let me know! HT
In this varied, interesting and challenging role the successful candidate will provide technical knowledge, software engineering and leadership ability for (i) a growing portfolio of data and knowledge management projects - including the ISA software suite (http://isacommons.org), the BioSharing registry (http://biosharing.org) - funded by UK, EU and NIH Big Data to Knowledge Initiative, and (i) activities for the ELIXIR UK node (http://elixir-uk.org) of the ELIXIR programme.
Job title: Research Software Engineer
Location: University of Oxford, Oxford e-Research Centre, 7 Keble Road, Oxford, OX1 3QG, UK
Contract type: 3 years fixed term, in the first instance (salary range £30-40k, or according to experience)

This of course leads to the bigger question of how many places do we need to maintain our research identity? Via my work persona, I do like to be available to other researchers interested in the same area of work, and therefore I am willing to maintain a number of social media outlets such as those above. However, where do we stop signing up for such things, and how do we know what's working best for us with respect to reaching out to the community of like-minded researchers?
Your thoughts would be most appreciated - thanks!
