DryadLab is the education focused component of the Dryad Digital Repository. They are just about to announce their website - check back soon.
The Dryad Digital Repository is a curated resource that makes the data underlying scientific publications discoverable, freely reusable, and citable. Dryad provides a general-purpose home for a wide diversity of data types. There are currently (July 2015) over nine thousand published data packages representing papers from many diverse scientific journals. [more info]
The mission of the Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES) project is to improve learning opportunities for all students enrolled in undergraduate biology courses by reflecting the centrality of quantitative approaches in modern biology [more info about QUBES]. One of the ways that QUBES promotes quantitative approaches is by partnering with existing projects and communities to facilitate the discovery and use of their materials [more info about partner projects].
The DryadLab / QUBES Collaboration
DryadLab and QUBES have joined forces to:
- Raise awareness of the DryadLab teaching materials within the QUBES community.
- Use the QUBES Hub collaborative tools to promote conversations about, and collaborations around, the DryadLab teaching materials.
- Establish a DryadLab Faculty Mentoring Network to work intensively with a group of faculty as they customize and implement DryadLab Modules.
