openBIS Importer Toolset (oBIT)


The openBIS Importer Toolset is a set of tools to streamline registration of acquired data and metadata into openBIS and extend openBIS via custom views and apps for working with data.


openBIS is an extensible, open source software framework for constructing user-friendly, scalable and powerful information systems for data and metadata acquired in biological experiments. It enables users to collect, integrate, share, publish data and to connect to data processing pipelines.

The openBIS Importer Toolset is a tightly integrated collection of tools that allows for the semi-automated, semi-unsupervised registration of annotated datasets into openBIS directly from the acquisition stations.


I am currently developing the openBIS Importer Toolset at the Single Cell Unit of the D-BSSE as part of my appointment as a data management engineer.
