This one-day workshop (Tuesday 11 June 2013, Brussels), focused on how Scratchpads and other ViBRANT tools may be of interest and be useful for the DNA taxonomists. It was organized by JEMU, BeBoL and ViBRANT, as part of the ViBRANT technical workshops, RBINS (WP3 Training, outreach and community support).

Virtual Biodiversity Research and Access Network for Taxonomy (ViBRANT) is a European Union FP7 funded project starting in December 2010 that will support the development of virtual research communities involved in biodiversity science. The goal is to provide a more integrated and effective framework for those managing biodiversity data on the Web. Read more...
