The mission of the Cyberinfrastructure Team is to engage in the specification, development, deployment, and maintenance of the cyberinfrastructure operated by DataONE and the project infrastructure necessary to support these activities.

For Phase 2 of the DataONE project, the broad categories of activities undertaken by this group include:

  1. To significantly expand the volume and diversity of data available to researchers for large­scale scientific innovation and discovery through addition of Member Nodes to the DataONE federation. This includes the development of additional or adaptation of existing MN software solutions as necessary.
  2. Incorporate innovative and high­value features into the DataONE CI. These include:
    • measurement search to leverage semantic technologies and enable precise data discovery and recall;
    • provenance tracking to enable more reproducible science by storing and indexing provenance trace information;
    • data extraction, sub­setting and processing services to for example, facilitate researcher interaction large data sets by advertising services available at Member Nodes to access a specified subset of data
  3. Maintain and improve core software and services while maintaining cybersecurity and trust.

Specific Activities include:

  • Semantics and Provenance data tracking and discovery
  • Data Services Registration
  • Maintenance and Operations
  • Member Node software and deployment
