Dryad is a generic subject repository that shares author submitted data with other scientific repositories. In a part “how we done it” and part “things to consider” talk, I’ll discuss 1) why we chose BagIt and OAI-ORE as mechanisms for sharing our data, 2) how we’ve integrated with TreeBASE – a subject repository of phylogenetic information), and 3) the possibility of this method of data sharing being adopted by other repositories within the larger DataONE community.

There will be cake.
