ISA tools and commons

ISA is an ELIXIR Recommended Interoperability Resource

Open source metadata model and authoring tools to describe, share, and publish life science, environmental and biomedical experiments using community-defined reporting standards. This FAIR-enabling framework is embedded in other data systems, such as institute-based (e.g. USA NASA GeneLab Data Repository), global repositories (e.g. EMBL-EBI MetaboLights), and other annotation software (e.g. InterMine and FAIRDOM-SEEK)

Operating successfully since 2007, the open source ISA metadata tracking framework facilitates the standards-compliant collection, curation, management, publication and reuse of an increasingly diverse set of life science, environmental and biomedical experiments that employ one or a combination of technologies.

ISA is used by ELIXIR Plant Sciences, Metabolomics, and Toxicology Communities. ISA partners with UK, France, EBI, Belgium, and Slovenia Nodes, which have co-developed components, and are doing work around ISA parsers and validation tools in the context of data validation programs.
