Neururer 2016 Abstract Mito Xmas Meeting Innsbruck
|A project to develop a standardized minimum dataset to describe mitochondrial data.|
Mitochondrial research strongly relies on high quality data. A novel project aims to develop a concept for a minimum data set to describe and exchange mitochondrial data between research groups. The development is based on the MIABIS (Minimum Information About BIobank data Sharing)  standard, which was created for sharing meta data referring to biobanks and biomaterial collections. Within the framework of this project, we evaluate, which basic data is needed to describe mitochondrial meta information and if MIABIS could be reused for this purpose. The project consists of five steps: During Step 1 relevant free-text mitochondrial information is analyzed following and extending the definition analysis approach described by Neururer et al. . In Step 2 a typological analysis  is carried out in order to identify the relevant data fields. These data fields are mapped to the concepts offered by MIABIS during Step 3. This step shows, to which extent the MIABIS standard can be reused and extended for this project. The concept for a novel mitochondrial data model is developed and described in Step 4. A detailed and expert-based evaluation of this concept is the main objective of Step 5. The project combines different approaches from interdisciplinary fields of research (e.g. computer science, social sciences) and contributes to the current state of the art of mitochondrial knowledge management to enhance mitochondrial research networking.
