Data Gator launches a search for his missing sediment samples in the latest instalment of Swamped? But the samples are nowhere to found, Gator’s research into swamp ecosystems is doomed, and it’s all metadata’s fault for being boring and confusing…

FAIR frog decides to ask Ville, a HEAP researcher, how he uses metadata to keep track of 2 million samples from the Finnish maternity cohort. Ville also explains how the HEAP platform will work, and how scientists will be able to request access to raw data from other studies to make their research truly collaborative.

“Making data accessible” is the third instalment of the “Swamped?” video series, in which our heroes show you why good data management is essential for collaborative research and to uncover new scientific insights.
