OMIA/EVA integration

  • To integrate 30+ years of records from the manually curated OMIA database into the international European Variation Archive (EVA), including resolving issues resulting from manual data entry.


  • My role was project management.
  • I was the only person with both software and biology experience on the team, so I had to provide substantial communication “translation”.
  • Regular check-ins via email and Zoom, with both local and international partners, facilitated the progress of this project.


  • Records have been standardised (last bugfixes happening now) and will be part of the next EVA release.

Key tools

  • git & GitHub; GitHub projects; Jira; Trello; email/Zoom..
