Data Organization and Management

Good management and stewardship of data generated by the NaPDI Center are key tenets of the goal to provide rigorous, evidence-based information regarding natural-product drug interactions. This recommended approach addresses the four foundational FAIR data principles: findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability. Included in the recommendation are suggestions for data standardization, representation, metadata, quality assurance, and publishing. These suggestions reflect the NaPDI Center’s experience creating and maintaining a database and public portal designed to provide researchers with answers to key questions regarding natural product-drug interactions.
