eScience Lab

The eScience Lab research group is led by Professor Carole Goble. The group is based at the Department of Computer Science, University of Manchester. It’s affiliated with the wider Information Management Group.

The eScience Lab team are focused on research and development around a set of tools designed for data driven and computational research. The tools support the coming together of people, data and methods in a particular research area; this is also known as an e-laboratory. These e-Laboratories or e-Labs support domains as diverse as systems biology, social science, music, astronomy, multimedia and chemistry. The tools have been adopted by a large number of projects and institutions.

Our research and projects span a wide array of topics, including eScience, bioinformatics, biodiversity, scholarly communication, reproducible science, linked data, provenance, community building and knowledge representation.
