The vision of the NFDI4Microbiota consortium is that researchers in microbiology (including bacteriology, virology, protistology, mycology and parasitology) can translate omics data easily into a deep understanding of microbial species and their interactions on a molecular level.
The mission of the NFDI4Microbiota consortium is to be the central hub in Germany for supporting the microbiology community with access to data, analysis services, data/metadata standards and training.
The aims and objectives of NFDI4Microbiota are:
- Making omics data related to microbial species and diverse microbiomes FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable).
- Making the analysis of such data accessible, consistent and reproducible by offering automated data processing systems.
- Promoting data sharing and re-use.
