We are very pleased to welcome Prof. Jürgen Pleiss, Institute of Biochemistry and Technical Biochemistry at the University Stuttgart as new participant in the NFDI4Chem consortium.
Prof. Pleiss is a member of the committee “Research Data & Software Management” of the Cluster of Excellence “Data-integrated simulation science” (EXC 2075), PI of the INF project within CRC 1333 “Molecular heterogeneous catalysis in confined geometries”, and developed the standardised data exchange format EnzymeML, which is the basis of an RDM infrastructure in enzymology and biocatalysis. Prof. Pleiss and his team will contribute namely to task areas 2, 4 and 5. This includes contributions to design of chemotion ELN for the subdiscipline of Biochemistry with EnzymeML platform for RDM of enzymatic data in TA2. In addition, Prof. Pleiss and his team will link NFDI4Chem to the enzymology community.
In TA4, EnzymeML will serve as a showcase to demonstrate the benefits of good scientific data management practice, with concepts that are transferable to describing non-enzymatic reactions. Finally, the training courses in research data management, which Prof. Pleiss and his team have put together, will enhance the existing and continuously growing training portfolio of NFDI4Chem under TA5.
