Implementing Effective Data Practices: Stakeholder Recommendations for Collaborative Research Support

In December 2019, immediately following the CNI Fall Member meeting, the Association of Research Libraries convened an NSF-funded workshop to examine how to improve research data management practices. This was done in partnership with the California Digital Library, the Association of American Universities, and the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities. They have just issued the final report from this workshop, Implementing Effective Data Practices: Stakeholder Recommendations for...

CIPRES Science Gateway: Exploring Evolutionary Relationships

CyberInfrastructure for Phylogenetic RESearch (CIPRES), is a gateway that launched in 2009 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego that allows researchers to explore evolutionary connections among species. The gateway provides a sophisticated set of software tools and high-performance computers that would be too costly and difficult for individual researchers to create. It allows phylogenetic researchers to compare DNA sequences and predict common ancestors among plants and...
