GigaScience: data and beta-database launch. Announcing GigaDB

Jan 28, 2015



GigaScience Editor-in-Chief Laurie Goodman's talk at the International Conference on Genomics pre-conference press-session on the release of new unpublished datasets, and a new look beta version of their database:

  • 1. Announces the launch ofWith the release of seventeen new genomic datasets from both plants and animals

2. An upcoming open-access open-data journal and database Innovative article publishing and data hosting big and sharable www.gigasciencejournal.comPublished by BGI inpartnership with BioMed Central 3. About The Journal Open access, open-data online journal optimized for the publication of all types of biological studies that use or create large-scale data sets. Novel publication format that combines standard manuscript publication with an extensive database that hosts all associated data. Scope includes studies from the entire spectrum of life and biomedical sciences,including imaging, neuroscience, ecology, medicine, omics, and other types oflarge-scale shareable data.Data are released under a CC0 license, making them, as much as possible under law, in the public domain so that others may freely use these for any purposes without restriction under copyright or database law.Editorial interaction with the different biological communities to determine the best means of hosting and accessing their type of data. Integrated tools to promote more widespread access, viewing, and analysis of the stored data. BGI Cloud Computing resources for handling and analyzing large-scale data. All Data given a DOI to allow ease of finding and citing datasets, as well as for citation tracking. 4. Why DOIs? Clear method for data tracking and data citation, allowing: Increased searchability (and use) of data Credit for data production, making it clear who produced the data and when The ability to track and receive feedback on data usage Credit to original authors for their datas use A data citation metric potentially rivaling and complementary to the impact factor The potential to publish papers relating to a dataset, while making the data available and receiving credit for it earlier 5. Our first DOI:To maximize its utility to the research community and aid those fighting the currentepidemic, genomic data is released here into the public domain under a CC0license. Until the publication of research papers on the assembly and whole-genome analysis of this isolate we would ask you to cite this dataset as:Li, D; Xi, F; Zhao, M; Liang, Y; Chen, W; Cao, S; Xu, R; Wang, G; Wang, J;Zhang, Z; Li, Y; Cui, Y; Chang, C; Cui, C; Luo, Y; Qin, J; Li, S; Li, J; Peng, Y;Pu, F; Sun, Y; Chen,Y; Zong, Y; Ma, X; Yang, X; Cen, Z; Zhao, X; Chen, F; Yin, X;Song,Y ; Rohde, H; Li, Y; Wang, J; Wang, J and the Escherichia coli O104:H4 TY-2482 isolate genome sequencing consortium (2011)Genomic data from Escherichia coli O104:H4 isolate TY-2482. BGI Shenzhen.doi:10.5524/100001 the extent possible under law, BGI Shenzhen has waived all copyright and related or neighboring rights toGenomic Data from the 2011 E. coli outbreak. This work is published from: China. 6.

Releasing During ICG-VI Animals: Both Vertebrates and InvertebratesAnt:Florida carpenter ant (Camponotus floridanus)Jerdons jumping ant (Harpegnathos saltator)Leaf-cutter ant (Acromyrmex echinatior)Human (Homo sapiens):Asian individual (YH): Genome Assembly Data DNA Methylome of Blood Cells Data Lymphoblastoid cell Transcriptome DataNaked mole rat (Heterocephalus glaber)Roundworm (Ascaris suum)Sheep, domestic (Ovis aries)Silkworm:Domestic (Bombyx mori) and wild (Bombyx mandarina) Multiple strainsTibetan antelope (Pantholops hodgsonii) 9. Releasing During ICG-VIPlants Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa) Cucumber, domestic (Cucumis sativus var. sativus L.) Foxtail millet (Setaria italica) Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan) Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) Sorghum(Sorghum bicolor): Two Strains: sweet and grainComing:Additional Human Individuals Aboriginal Australian Saqqaq palaeoeskimoAnd others that are currently under review 10. Datasets without published analysis papers Five of these datasets illustrate the future of early data release:These datasets are being released before their analysis papers arepublished. These data can now be used by the community and the data citedwith a DOI: This promotes very rapid data release, as the data producers canreceive citable credit the primary means by which mostacademicians receive career advancement. Thus, DOI and citation of data reduce the need to delay data releaseuntil after publication of the more detailed data analysis paper.(1) Foxtail millet; (2) Sorghum; (3) Human Asianindividual lymphoblastoid cell transcriptome data;(4) Domestic Sheep; (5) Tibetan antelope 11.

First demonstration of New Gold Standard for Data CitationDr. Clare Garvey, Editor of Genome Biology, has informedus, and agreed for us to announce, that The sorghum genomeanalysis paper has just been accepted in Genome Biology. Itwill be published later this month, and that paper will includethe data citation in the references where it can be easilytracked by Thompson ISI, and allow the easiest way currentlypossible for readers today to find and use that data.Zheng.
