BiCIKL: Biodiversity Community Integrated Knowledge Library

BiCIKL: Biodiversity Community Integrated Knowledge Library
 
Coordinated by the Pensoft publisher, BiCIKL is an H2020 project that will initiate and build a new European starting community of key research infrastructures, establishing open science practices in the domain of biodiversity through provision of access to data, associated tools and services at (1) each separate stage of, and (2) along the entire research cycle. BiCIKL will provide new methods and workflows for an integrated access to harvesting, liberating, linking, accessing and re-using of sub-article-level data (specimens, material citations, samples, sequences, taxonomic names, taxonomic treatments, figures, tables) extracted from literature. BiCIKL will provide for the first time access and tools for seamless linking and usage tracking of data along the line: specimens → sequences → species → analytics → publications → biodiversity knowledge graph → re-use.
 
In particular, BICIKL will leverage the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics Literature Services to FAIR-ly mine the life science literature (e.g. Named entity recognition for species, gene and gene products, biotic interactions, ...). To learn more about the SIB Literature services, which are part of the Elixir Data Platform services (https://elixir-europe.org/platforms/data), please visit the SIBiLS API and documentation website: https://candy.hesge.ch/SIBiLS/.
