What's up next to build?
A few limitations on the current platform are slated for improvements:
Data entry is currently capped at < 1,000 rows per dataset; this limit will eventually be lifted
Datasets currently require complete (day, month, and year) date information; we will eventually implement solutions to allow user to enter data with incomplete dates
Dataset units will soon be customizable
Users will soon be allowed to change passwords and edit their profile information
The publishing workflow will soon be simplified
What's coming in the medium-term?
Medium-term development priorities include:
Direct linkages to other databases (e.g., through GenBank accessions)
Search and filter functionality on the map interface
Automated tracking of data citations by webscraping
What are some long-term goals?
Eventually, we hope to implement features like:
Automatic updating of taxonomic information in PHAROS as the NCBI taxonomic backbone updates
Integration of AI-driven tools for risk forecasts related to human or livestock health
An open-source developer toolkit so that the community can curate and improve PHAROS
