• Central data base project:
  Central database and communication platform of the research unit KiLi

From 01/11/2016 to 31/10/2018

Project leader:  Ingolf Steffan-Dewenter, Thomas Nauss, Katrin Böhning-Gaese

During the first and second phase of the KiLi research unit, the central project Z2 maintained and expanded the central database infrastructure and communication platform and managed the continuous documentation, upload and quality control of final data sets from all subprojects. In the third phase, the services and tools provided by the central data base project will be essential for all synthesis projects. To deliver comprehensive and reliable data services, significant efforts must be paid in database maintenance, in coordination and support of data documentation, in quality control of uploaded data, documentation of data exchange and the maintenance of the communication platform. A further objective of the database project is the long term data archiving, not only during the third project period, but also beyond. The technical preconditions for a transfer of the KiLi data base to the German Federation for Biological Data (GFBio) will be developed.
