Finding, sharing and exchanging data, models, simulations and processes in life sciences
The SEEK platform is a Web-based resource for sharing heterogeneous scientific research datasets, models or simulations, processes and research outcomes. It preserves associations between them, along with information about the people and organisations involved. SEEK is written in Ruby on Rails and Java.
Underpinning SEEK is the ISA infrastructure, a standard format for describing how individual experiments are aggregated into wider studies and investigations. Within SEEK, ISA has been extended and is configurable to allow the structure to be used outside of Biology.
SEEK incorporates semantic technology allowing sophisticated queries over the data, yet without getting in the way of your users.
As part of EOSC-Life and IBISBA, SEEK is being extended with support for Workflows and describing the results from analysis pipelines.
