About the Webinar

Are you using everything CyVerse has to offer? Now in our 13th year, CyVerse serves more than 90,000 researchers worldwide and has transformed 21st century science in ways we and our funders only dreamed of when we first rolled out the Data Store in 2010. From using CyVerse for data-driven research, to teaching modern computational and data science with our open science resources, to building your research community through CyVerse's collaboration tools and features, CyVerse Principal Investigator Eric Lyons will be joined by five guest presenters whose amazing projects, classes, and research teams have used CyVerse as their foundational workspace. Join us for what you can do with CyVerse in 2021!
