This workshop will focus on teaching researchers how to annotate BIDS datasets to make them more findable and reusable. We will identify some sample BIDS datasets and attendees will learn how to create un-ambiguous data dictionaries (JSON sidecar files) for BIDS formatted datasets using the latest tools from the NIDM and ReproNim efforts. Attendees will then learn how to query across the sample BIDS datasets using concept annotations created during the annotation portion of the training. Attendees will be taught how to use the query tools developed for NIDM by ReproNim while also being taught the core NIDM model and how to write their own queries. Attendees will then be introduced to NIDM tools allowing them to learn relationships between variables contained within the sample BIDS datasets using simple linear regression and how these derived data can be described using the BIDS-Prov extension. At the completion of this workshop attendees should be able to create their own BIDS annotation files using multiple tools, query within their BIDS dataset or across multiple BIDS datasets, and understand the current state of derived data provenance in BIDS and NIDM.

Topics covered in this lesson
  • BIDS annotation files using multiple tools
  • NIDM Model
  • Query within BIDS dataset
  • Current state of derived data provenance in BIDS and NIDM.
