A detailed workplan has been developed comprising subtasks and milestones, estimated time for each subtask, and resources required. The time frame of the project is short, but the work plan is designed to avoid dependencies so work can proceed in parallel. LINCS prioritizes conversion to harvest low-hanging fruit first, leaving more challenging datasets for later. Within the first eighteen months, we will set up the Storage with an initial set of at least 40 million triples accessible through initial components of the consumption interface; from there we will roll out more tools and interfaces while converting the data at the same time.
