QUALITY CONTROL & DATA MANAGEMENT

Working Group

The BINA Quality Control and Data Management Working Group (QC-DM WG) was created to help drive the North American and international imaging communities’ efforts to improve the reproducibility, comparability, downstream analysis and re-use of image data through rigorous record-keeping, quality control, and data management.

As such the QC-DM WG will concentrated its efforts in two directions:

  1. Work in close connection with similar global efforts to generate shared guidelines and usable tools to facilitate the quantitative assessment and calibration of microscope performance, rigorous record-keeping of image acquisition conditions, and management of data in a manner that facilitates connecting resulting imaging dataset with metadata describing its “provenance."

  2. Work in close connection with the BINA Communication WG to promote the dissemination of emerging best practices to the entire imaging community in North America and at large.
