    1818At the core of BBMRI there is the vision to develop all resources in a hub and spokes manner such that we maximize use of local expertise and innovation and minimize duplicated efforts and barriers to integration via centralized harmonization and enrichment. The smallest hubs within the Dutch biobank landscape are the individual biobanks, the larger hubs the participating institutes, and the largest hubs are central deployment of key data and analysis resources (which again can connect to pan-European hubs).  This project will mirror this organization to bridge between biomedical researchers, bioinformaticians and hardcore software engineers to ensure the multi-disciplinary interplay needed:

    20 ·        A __central engineering team of hardcore programmers__ is responsible for the overarching infrastructure and will ensure harmonization of tools, pipelines and databases between working groups. This group will function as one of the eight NBIC task forces and will meet every week to ensure knowledge and method transfer.

    22 ·        __Participating experts will host programmers and scientific staff to pilot the planned tools and pipelines__ in close support to (their) BBMRI-NL complementation and rainbow projects. These bioinformaticians will be organized in themed working groups as described in appendix 1. Each working group will have a lead programmer that is part of the central engineering team. All members will meet monthly and will have weekly Skype meetings.

    2525=== Model driven software ===
    2626Flexible model driven software development as described in Swertz & Jansen (2007) has proven to be an efficient method to rapidly produce harmonized software infrastructures for life scientists while sharing the best models, software and tools notwithstanding large variation in research aims. This project will build and extend upon open source implementations of these methods such as MOLGENIS and Galaxy focusing on:
