Abstract

GENASIS (Global ENvironmental ASsessment and Information System) is the web environmental information system which is an environmental data repository that provides comprehensive information on chemical contamination of the environment by Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). GENASIS combines data from long-term environmental monitoring programmes operated by RECETOX with validated data from partner institutions, and provides data archives, data management services and analytical processing of data. In the past few years the GENASIS system has undergone rapid development and grew up from the data repository into a scientific data infrastructure.
