A True Community Database: Public Annotation In MaizeGDB
The MaizeGDB public annotation system allows visitors to the site to add annotations to specific points of data on the site and receive credit for these annotations. In essence, it allows the site to become a tool for the sharing of information and connection of people in the maize community with common interests.
Using the System
The system is designed to be simple to use. All public annotations are
available to all visitors; the record page for a specific piece of data
shows all of the public annotations provided for that record.
Examples of Uses
Sharing information: This tool is perfect for sharing information
such as homologies, verifications of data, sequence notes, useful URLs, or
other information relevant to specific pieces of data.
Getting started is easy! Just create an account and then visit a record of interest to you!
