Operational Team

BioSharing was created and is maintained by the team who brought you the ISA framework, ISA Commons and the MIBBI portal, which it replaces. Based at the University of Oxford e-Research Centre, we are passionate about developing and applying methods and software to improve data curation, management, visualization and publication to enable reproducible research, driving science and discoveries.

We are indebted to contributions from our collaborators.
