Dear GBIF fellows,
Has announced before, I just published DNA derived data as two datasets:
- Antarctic Microbial Biodiversity(AMBIO) samples
- On the use of high-throughput sequencing for the study of cyanobacterial diversity in Antarctic aquatic mats
The first one contains the Antarctic samples and lake’s physico-chemical measurements.
The second one contains the DNA-derived occurrences of Cyanobacteria.
I found this elegant solution, hoping it will not make it harder for Data Users to retrieve data from both datasets.
Other occurrences, from the very same samples, but from different authors working on different taxonomic groups will follow.
Maybe this practice should be encouraged until the new data model is in place.
