FAIRification of Genomic Tracks

We propose to advance the application of FAIR principles to metadata for human genomic tracks by developing recommendations for metadata as well as algorithmic tools, to apply the recommendations to tracks from selected hubs associated with the Ensembl TrackHub Registry, to implement a track search service that integrates metadata from different track hubs, and to test the implementation with selected track-oriented analytical tools. The recommendations will form a basis for developing a standard for metadata on genomic tracks.
