With $2.5 Million from the National Science Foundation, a national team of interdisciplinary collaborators aims to harness the power of big data and CyVerse to predict the fate of global biodiversity in light of environmental change.
The Integrated Rule Oriented Data System (iRODS) is an open source initiative that has been developed to manage data from raw instrument readings through publication, solving the challenges of curation and addressing secure collaboration. CyVerse is a key iRODS use case, supporting collaborations of multi-national scientists and researchers.
A National Science Foundation award to the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and partner institutions will integrate scientific samples into a digital data ecosystem. CyVerse users will be able to register samples and index their metadata through the CyVerse Data Store.
