Genetic data and services
Introduction to genetic data services in SBDI [12 min]. How does SBDI link to genetic data? In this webinar our molecular genetics expert Anders Andersson gives you a short overview of the genetic data services in SBDI. He also outlines the plan for further expenading these services.
SBDI workflow for processing metabarcoding data [24 min]. Looking for a pipeline to process and publish your metabarcoding data? In this webinar our molecular genetics expert Daniel Lundin gives a demonstration of SBDI’s metabarcoding workflow.
The Swedish ASV portal [17 min]. In this webinar our molecular genetics expert Maria Pager introduces you to SBDI’s portal for access and publication of genetic data.
Metabarcoding analysis pipeline with DADA2 [60 min]. Want to run your metabarcoding analysis offline? This webinar walks you through a complete processing pipeline for metabarcoding data from Artificial Reef Monitoring Structures (ARMS) as currently collected in the ARMS MBON program. The demo starts with Illumina MiSeq data and finishes with taxonomy assigned ASVs.
Data from biological monitoring programs
Marine data for long-term ecological research [20 min]. Are you planning to analyze data from marine biological monitoring programs? In this webinar our marine data experts Lisa Sundqvist and Malin Werner explain how you can access marine data and time series in SBDI.
Species and habitat data from terrestrial vegetation monitoring [17 min]. Are you planning to analyze data and time series from terrestrial vegetation monitoring programs? In this webinar our forest data expert Anna-Lena Axelsson explains what data SBDI can offer and how you can access these.
Decades of data from monitoring birds, butterflies and mammals [18 min]. SBDI is linked to biological monitoring programs for birds, butterflies and mammals. In this webinar our data expert Annelie Maria Jönsson explains how to access data from these programs.
BioCollect – a tool for systematic biodiversity data [11 min]. Are you planing to set up your own monitoring program? In this webinar our database expert Aleksandra Magdziarek explains how to use the BioCollect tool to create a customized database for your own systematic monitoring project and publish the collected data through SBDI.
Links and relations with international infrastructures
Darwin Core Hour webinar series. Darwin Core (DwC) has become a broadly-used standard for biodiversity data sharing. Despite, or because of, its popularity, people trying to use the standard continue to have questions about how to use Darwin Core and associated extensions such as Audubon Core, Resource Relationship, and Measurement Or Fact. This webinar series looks at open questions related to Darwin Core and individual chapters in the series will focus on specific topics.
GBIF community webinars. Here you can find announcements and recordings of regular online meetings for the GBIF community hosted by the GBIF Secretariat. The goal of these webinars is to maintain communication and interaction between the GBIF Secretariat and the broader biodiveristy research community, particularly the GBIF nodes. The content of the webinars includes news from the Secretariat as well as updates on GBIF’s work programme.
NEFOM workshop “Back to the roots”. At this workshop held on 19-20 April 2021 researchers discussed how forest biodiversity open data and associated digital services should be built and brought together in a FAIR way. An overview of the best practices in data management, analysis, service development and publishing was be given by invited speakers. The presentations are made available as PDF’s at the website.
