Biological data represent a unique informatics challenge but researchers around the world are developing innovative methods for linking biological data, making biological data accessible, standardizing, and sharing biological data. In this breakout session we will provide a look at several projects with innovative approaches to informatics challenges related to biological data and showcase the power of open science principles and emerging observation methods. We will also highlight the role that standards play in making all this possible.
