The EBI is essentially in the business of biological sciences data.

In this talk, I'm only focusing on metabolomics,
which makes up a small portion of the efforts which are ongoing at EBI.
I would like to go through the current state
of data sharing and data standards in metabolomics.
I have to say here at the beginning that this is by
