About the ELMI

ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.

I3D:bio OMERO training material: Re-usable, adjustable, multi-purpose slides for local user training.

The Information Infrastructure for BioImage Data (I3D:bio) project, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation), focuses on facilitating the uptake of OMERO into bioimaging research data management practices at universities and institutions in Germany. At the ELMI Meeting 2023, project members invited to a workshop about REMBI-based metadata annotation in bioimaging.

Together with the project’s partners from the informal RDM4mic (Research Data Management for Microscopy) group and working groups of German BioImaging – Society for Microscopy and Image Analysis (GerBI-GMB), a set of slides was created to serve as another community-contributed resource for imaging facilities using OMERO for research data management. Core facilities staff (or others) can easily adjust the material for local training to fit their own OMERO instance specifications. The material includes recommendations for metadata annotation in OMERO. All slideshows are available in original and open formats for download and reuse. They were published as an Open Educational Resource on Zenodo (CC-BY license):

The slides can serve to be used as
– self-guided instructional manuals
– for lectures / courses on RDM with OMERO
– for short video tutorials
addressing beginners in using OMERO.
Additionally, a series of generic short video tutorials for beginners in using OMERO was created based on the material: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2k-L-zWPoR7SHjG1HhDIwLZj0MB_stlU
Both resources are listed in MicroscopyDB.io.
