European Commission launches COVID-19 Data Portal to bolster research efforts
In case you missed it, the European Commission has launched a data portal for scientists studying the SARS-CoV-2 virus to speed up access to data sets and tools in order to bolster research efforts by encouraging data reuse and open science.
The COVID-19 Data Portal aims to accelerate regional efforts to combat the virus by creating a central repository for storing and sharing available research data. This includes the likes of DNA sequences, protein structures, data from pre-clinical research and clinical trials and epidemiological data.
