Data Management Plan

NoPest research will generate electronic files and datasets primarily of two types, text files and structure files. Text files consist of the following: lists of candidate target proteins from pathogens (D1.1, D1.4); linear and cyclic peptide aptamers interacting or not with the 20 most promising oomycete target proteins, together with their biochemical properties (D2.2, D2.3); lists of non-peptide molecules identified by virtual screening (D.4.3); lists of non-peptide small molecules and peptidomimetics, together with the description of their performance in vitro and in vivo, their specificity and toxicity (D7.1, D7.2, D7.3, D7.4); sequence data of genes, proteins and peptides; protocols for the growth of oomycetes in vitro (D1.2), and for in vitro aptamer bioactivity assays (D6.1); protocols and data derived from the test and validation of the various non-invasive sensing technologies under lab and field conditions (D5.1, D5.2, D5.3); formulations of the 3 best molecules (peptidomimetics and non-peptide molecules) to be tested in vivo (D8.1); data on cost-benefit analysis of the NoPest technology (D8.3). All data (text and structural) will be stored at the Work-Package Leader (WPL) organization and at the NoPest website server. Data at the NoPest website will be stored in a searchable database. Multiple tools for building the database are available, including the CACTVS toolkit ( This setup will allow for an easy web-based execution of two important tasks: 1) visualization and manipulation of protein/peptides/small molecules structures and 2) text searching and structural searching for the retrieval of textual and structural information. Metadata: In compliance with metadata requirements, a master file will be created by WPLs for each experiment in liaison with the relevant teams. All details will be recorded: project number, personnel involved, date of experiments, contacts, filenames and dates of the protocol document, data and analysis files. Methods and timeframes for data sharing: Publishable datasets will be analysed and published in open-access scientific journals, so the data will become universally available within the papers or their electronic supplementary materials. Data files will be stored by the WPLs and the corresponding author(s) of the papers. • Physical materials (pathogens, plasmids, libraries) will be kept by the corresponding authors of publications and will be distributed to the scientific community upon request. • After publication, each dataset will be publicly available in a downloadable format at the NoPest website
