Dawn Field and Susanna-Assunta Sansone guest edited a special issue of the journal OMICS on data standards as an output of the 2nd GSC workshop. There were 22 invited papers including 5 in the area of standardization of genomic data (See: Special_Issue_of_OMICS).
An overview of the issue and its goals is captured in the foreword: http://www.liebertonline.com/doi/pdfplus/10.1089/omi.2006.10.84
The entire issue was open source and many of the papers in the issue continue to be at the top of the most downloaded list: http://www.liebertonline.com/action/showMostReadArticles?journalCode=omi

Special issue of OMICS from the 5th GSC Workshop

Dawn Field and George Garrity have been asked by the OMICS Editor and Chief Eugene Kolker to produce a special issue of OMICS based on the 5th GSC Workshop. After guaging interest in this prior to the workshop, and in response to developments at the workshop, we are going to accept this invitation.We are now considering proposals from the participants of the 5th GSC workshop (and their colleagues) for contributions on several key topics of special interest to the GSC.
