Data-driven science is generating biological data at unprecedented rates. To make the information sequestered in the accumulating data accessible to the community, and to represent it such that it can be translated to knowledge, requires the development of rigorous data-stewardship practices and deployment of training. Data science is an emerging field, and training programmes are just being created. Best practices in data curation and in data-science training need to be established. This poster introduces the GOBLET Standards committee members, the institutional members involved and the activities the committee is currently working on.
