WG5 Data Processing and Integration


ISO/TC 276/WG 5 “Data processing and integration” aims to develop ISO deliverables for traceable, searchable, and interoperable data together with integrated data processing for biotechnology/life sciences.

The main foci are:

  • definition of data and model formats and their interfaces;
  • definition of metadata and relations of data and models;
  • quality management of processed data and models.

WG 5 will build on existing community standards and develop ISO deliverables where needs and gaps are identified. WG5 will coordinate its work with relevant technical committees and standardization initiatives. This includes coordination with all working groups of ISO/TC 276.
