About Project

BioVeL is a virtual e-laboratory that supports research on biodiversity issues using large amounts of data from cross-disciplinary sources. BioVeL offers the possibility to use computerised "workflows" (series of data analysis steps) to process data, be that from one's own research and/or from existing sources.

BioVEL utilises the Catalogue of Life synonym-expansion service in its data-refinement workflow, resulting in improved access to specimen and observational data, ensuring that scientific study and publication can be based on the best available taxonomic data. In addition discussions are under-way to incorporate the Cross-mapping software as a BioVEL service.
