GFBio
GFBio (https://www.gfbio.org) is a national infrastructure and contact point for issues concerning research data management and standardization of biological and environmental data. The project was established in 2013 with the main goal is to support scholars in all steps of the data life cycle, from acquisition to archiving and data publication. Five years later, GFBio provides a data portal with access to more than 5 Mio biodiversity metadata files. The majority of this data is linked with primary research data which can be further analyzed in an interactive visualization tool. Furthermore, GFBio is the national contact point for submitting biological data and mediates data archiving in dedicated data centers to ensure sustainable, long-term preservation and publication of research data. In addition, it organizes and supports education and training of scholars on all facets of research data management.
