EMBL-ABR: an interview with Kate LeMay

Category : data life cycle

Kate LeMay works at the Australian National Data Service as a Senior Research Data Specialist, focusing on health and medical data. She was in Melbourne last month to attend our EMBL-ABR workshops. We asked her about bioinformatics in general and the data life-cycle in particular. Her message is clear: using a framework like the data life cycle ensures that Australian bioinformaticians are keeping up with best practice standards being used and developed internationally.
