What is the state of biocuration in 2019? What skills do they have and what training do they need? In this workshop, we will describe our understanding of the biocuration landscape, via our recent survey, highlight gaps and together work to fill them and identify next steps . This workshop builds on the “Training needs for biocuration" workshop, held at Biocuration 2016.
