John-Marc Chandonia is a computational biologist with a background in protein structure prediction, structure classification, and evolutionary analysis of proteins. His team develops novel methods to analyze genome-scale datasets in order to predict biological networks and annotate gene functions. He leads the ENIGMA Data Management team, working on the Data Clearing House, a platform that we developed to organize all ENIGMA data in a FAIR way (the FAIR principles require that all data be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable, both for machines and for people). FAIR data management is critical to enabling the large-scale team science that distinguishes projects like ENIGMA from the kind of research that can be conducted in individual labs. This features much smoother uploading and plotting of multi-dimensional datasets, to fit into the ENIGMA data management ecosystem.
