20 Allotrope Data Format – Semantic Data Management in Life Sciences.pdf

Research intensive industries like the (bio-) pharmaceutical industry require a data architecture enabling universal laboratory data storage comprising describing metadata, ontologies and vocabularies, long-term data persistence,<br>and metadata structure visualization. We present the Allotrope Data Format, the Allotrope Foundation Ontologies, ZONTAL Space and OSee as a comprehensive set of tools for laboratory data management.
