Niclas Jareborg is Data Manager at the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden - NBIS. The Life Science research area has seen an explosive growth of data output in recent years. This puts new demands on researchers for proper data management and makes pertinent the need for e-Infrastructures to support these processes.

There is also an increasing demand to make these large datasets open for reuse by others. An added complication is that a large fraction of this data is sensitive, and must be properly managed to handle the balance between the societal value of the data while at the same time protecting the integrity of the participating individuals.
