CRADLE Seminar: Celebrating Darwin Day — Metadata Research and the Dryad Repository Project

The Dryad repository is for scientific data supporting published research in the field of evolutionary biology and related disciplines. Dryad was launched via a collaboration between the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent), an NSF Center supporting research in evolutionary biology, and the Metadata Research Center (MRC) at the School of Information and Library Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dryad seeks to balance a need for low barriers inviting contribution from scientists and higher-level goals supporting data analysis activities. The Dryad development team has pursued an active metadata research agenda. This CRADLE talk will introduce the Dryad repository, provide an overview of current metadata research activities, and highlight several research accomplishments.
