Interoperability and semantic data integration still present a challenge to the working bioinformatician and for large scale data integration projects. This session will explore the lessons learned from two large interoperability projects - the IMI funded OpenPhacts, and the EC funded BioMedBridges. We will look forward to a new tool set for semantic interoperability for CORBEL, and discuss priorities for the bioinformatics community.
Co-chairs: Gabriella Rusticy (University of Cambridge), Tanja Ninkovic (EMBL, ELIXIR)

The aim of this two-hour workshop is to point out the achievements and bridges towards harmonization and linkages between BMS research infrastructures.
Co-chaired by Sergi Beltran (CNAG, Barcelona), Marco Roos (LUMC, Leiden), and RD-Connect partners
Research into rare diseases is typically fragmented by data type and disease. Individual efforts often have poor interoperability and do not systematically connect data across clinical phenotype, genomic data, biomaterial availability, and research/trial data sets. Such data must be linked at both an individual-patient and whole cohort level to enable researchers to gain a complete view of their disease and patient population of interest.

This workshop will be of interest to researchers applying multiple structural techniques to particular biological systems, and to informaticians interested in the technical aspects of dealing with complex experimental data.
