Project Collaborator

DCO-DS LogoDeep Carbon Observatory Data Science (DCO-DS)
Principal Investigator: Peter Fox
Co Investigator: Jim Hendler
Description: Given this increasing data deluge, it is clear that each of the Directorates in the Deep Carbon Observatory face diverse data science and data management needs to fulfill both their decadal strategic objectives and their day-to-day tasks. This project will assess in detail the data science and data management needs for each DCO directorate and for the DCO as a whole, using a combination of informatics methods; use case development, requirements analysis, inventories and interviews.
data.rpi.edu Project LogoRensselaer Polytechnic Institute Data Services (Data.rpi.edu)
Principal Investigator: Jim Hendler and Peter Fox
Description: Providing data storage, data services, data access, data discovery, data search, and data lifecycle and management for RPI research projects.
SVF LogoSemantic Vernaculars for Fungi (SVF)
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Co Investigator: Nathan Wilson
Description: Fungi are typically referred to by either scientific or common names. Neither of these terminologies meets the need for well-defined, persistent definitions of groups of fungi who exhibit similar macroscopic qualities, but may be dissimilar genetically. We propose a community-developed vocabulary that can be used to identify mushrooms based on properties that can be observed in the field (without microscopic or genomic examination). We show how an ontology can be used to develop and organize the terms and definitions and to enable applications based on the vocabulary.
