Coordination Team

In the marine domain, LifeWatch provides data services for a large and broad user community dealing with a variety of data types. Activities include provision of data tools and services for taxonomic, ecological, omics, biogeographic, environmental and biological observation data.

Tools for data archiving, access, quality control, standardization, harmonization, analysis and publication are integrated in a Marine Virtual Research Environment (Marine VRE).

In this regard, the LifeWatch Marine VRE aspires to be the transparent gateway to access, analyze and develop marine data resources.
