About Varsha Khodiyar
Varsha is responsible for creating the ISA-tab metadata files associated with articles published by Scientific Data, which facilitate the integration of articles and underlying datasets. In collaboration with the Editorial Board and relevant members of the scientific community, Varsha works to ensure that the most appropriate metadata is being captured for the published data from each community. Varsha began her career in curation after receiving her PhD from the University of Leicester. Based at University College London, she initially worked for the Human Gene Nomenclature Committee, which was followed by an 8 year stint as a Gene Ontology annotator. Prior to joining Scientific Data, Varsha worked on open data publication at the life science journal F1000Research.
