Real-Time Open Data Sharing of Zika Virus Research

Michael Graham, Research Specialist, Laboratory of David O’Connor, AIDS Vaccine Research Laboratory, University of Wisconsin-Madison


The laboratory of David O’Connor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been involved in Zika virus research during the recent outbreak in the Americas. The laboratory is conducting studies with non-human primates to establish the natural history of infection and create a model that can be used to target future vaccine development. A key component of the lab’s work is the usage of the LabKey Server platform for real-time open data sharing of zika virus data with researchers worldwide and to be able to aggregate diverse types of data that have been contributed by a large group of researchers to a central place.
