  1. VODAN: FAIR Data Work in Action

      Speakers: Albert Mons (Phortos Consultants) and Luiz Bonino (GO FAIR)

Description: One of the projects under the VODAN Implementation Network is developing a FAIR Data Point (FDP) with semantics based upon the World Health Organization eCRF forms. Up to six countries will deploy a Proof of Concept securing and keeping sensitive data at the data source yet remaining available for distributed learning. Learn about the semantic model, the ontologies used and the deployment of an FDP for COVID-19 data and how this may be relevant for your organization.

2. The SARS-Cov-2-SPOKE Molecular Explorer: A Public Knowledge Graph Visualization Tool 

Speaker: Sergio Baranzini and Sharat Israni (University of California, San Francisco)

Description: SPOKE is a knowledge graph containing more than 25 widely used databases in the biomedical domain. In this webinar, we will present the basic features of the neighborhood explorer with a particular emphasis on COVID-19 molecular pathways and potential drugs that could target the virus.
