Abstract

The Dataverse Project (http://dataverse.org/) is open source research data repository software, which was started a decade ago and is developed at Harvard's Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS). As of Dataverse version 4,  more support has begun to be added to help with the discovery and accessibility of life sciences data. This webinar will provide an overview of the Dataverse Project, as well as examples of how we are working with the life sciences' community to extend the software for this particular domain.
