Role of NFDI4Microbiota in DeCOI

Under the umbrella of the “Deutsche COVID-19 OMICS Initiative” (DeCOI), NFDI4Microbiota researchers are collaborating with two partners: (1) the NFDI consortium “The German Human Genome-Phenome Archive” (GHGA) and (2) the “Nationwide Research Network – Applied Surveillance and Testing” (B-FAST) of the Network University Medicine (NUM). Together, they are developing the COGDAT database, meant to host SARS-CoV-2 data resulting from German viral surveillance efforts. NFDI4Microbiota is involved in all aspects, from the coordination of the effort to the development of data analysis workflows, visualisations, acquisition of diagnostic labs as data-providing partners, and implementation of the FAIR data principles.
