Project

BioDialog project is a multi-national project joining Jena University, Ainshams, Assiut Egypt universities and Sfax Tunisia university. it  aims to bring together two important topics: namely data management and processing on the one hand and scientific data on the other hand. First, data is power. Globally, there has been a proliferation of data generated during the last decades. More and more, science and economy rely on data for decision making and progress. The large volume, fast pace of change, uncertainty and heterogeneity of this data necessitate the development and establishment of new mechanisms in order to collect, store, access, and reuse these data. In all countries, this is an important step towards a knowledge society providing participation to all and fostering accountability of government, companies, and research.

One area, where the importance of data is particularly obvious is biodiversity research. This discipline studies the totality and variability of organisms, their morphology and genetics, life history and habitats, and geographical ranges informatics techniques to biodiversity data for improved management, presentation, discovery, exploration and analysis (al., 2013). Biodiversity is usually used to refer to biological diversity at three levels: genetics, species, and ecology. The current rapid loss of biodiversity is cause for alarm. Biodiversity has a great and direct impact on human life and the survival of mankind. It affects our access to clean water, food, fuel, medical drug compounds, and BioDialog Project Conceptanimal feed. It is thus crucial to raise awareness for the importance of biodiversity and to develop methods to better understand and preserve it. Globally, a number of initiatives, such as the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) , the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity (IPBES), have been undertaken. These initiatives require scientific research into primary biological, chemical, and physical processes to develop predictive models and inform strategic decisions. To achieve these goals, reliable and constant biodiversity data should be made available in a consistent way. Biodiversity informatics is a relatively new discipline extending computer science in the context of biodiversity data, and its development to date has been uniform throughout the world.
