I am the Data and Model Manager for the Digital Salmon and the GenoSysFat projects. We are building a knowledge base of salmon physiology in the form of mathematical models interlinked with omics data, for applications in aquaculture, ecology and management. My duties entail managing and standardizing the data formats, protocols, and annotations generated related to these data; serving as our point of contact with the FAIRDOM initiative for findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable data,
Good data and model management improves the longevity and impact of your interdisciplinary research. FAIRDOM offers software and expertise to support you in better managing your interdisciplinary life-science projects, particularly in systems and synthetic biology. If you have never heard of data and model management, or are curious about it, or you are an expert keen to exchange ideas, our user meeting is the place for you!
At the meeting you will:
- Learn why data and model management is

Salmon farmed on modern feeds contains less of the healthy, long-chain fatty acids (EPA and DHA) than before. Up until the turn of the millennium, farmed salmon were fed fish oil as a replacement for their omega-3 rich natural prey. However, fish oil is now a scarce resource, and more than half of the fat in modern feeds comes from plant oils that are inexpensive, but devoid of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. How can we increase the omega-3 content of salmon on sustainable feeds?
One option is
Towards the Digital Salmon: From a reactive to a pre-emptive research strategy in aquaculture (DigiSal)
Salmon farming in the future must navigate conflicting and shifting demands of sustainability, shifting feed prices, disease, and product quality. The industry needs to develop a flexible, integrated basis of knowledge for rapid response to new challenges. Project DigiSal will lay the foundations for a Digital Salmon: an ensemble of mathematical descriptions of salmon physiology, combining
This is a sandbox where DigiSal members can learn to use the SEEK.
Tutorial document: http://tinyurl.com/seek-ds17
The SEEK is a web interface to a database of research "assets" organised in a hierarchical "ISA structure" (investigation-study-assay) .
These are further organised into projects and programmes.
* Programme = Overarching research theme (The Digital Salmon)
* Project = Research grant (DigiSal, GenoSysFat)
* Investigation = a particular biological process, phenomenon or thing
