Phenotyping facility coordinators Dr Kristiina Himanen and Prof. Thomas Roitsch joined a network of European phenomics facilities at INRAE, UCPH, UH and WUR to obtain access to the EGI-ACE as a use case. The project offers access to infrastructure and platform services as well as dedicated user support and training. This access now granted means that the PHIS databases housing data from the common data standard projects can be stored in the European Grid Infrastructure. The aim is to build a federated and interoperable e-infrastructure allowing researchers to share and analyze phenotyping data. It will be very useful for the NordPlant common data standard project to be on the EGI.
