The Bioschemas Implementation study organised its second meeting on May 24-26 at Hinxton. Bioschemas aims to improve data discoverability by encouraging the use of markup in websites and services. By using consistently structured information, the resources become more discoverable, facilitating collation and analysis of distributed data. Bioschemas is part of the wider schema community that is overseen by the consortium founded by Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and Yandex.

The next meeting of the Bioschemas Implementation study will be held at the EBI from 24-26 May.
