We are collaborating (formally and informally) with several other projects:

  • Using handshaking protocols to move data between Open Tree of Life and Dryad. Dryad will serve as the permanent archive for phylogenetic data associated with published articles (funded via the original Open Tree of Life grant)
  • Working with EOL to provide the Open Tree phylogenetic framework as a browsing mechanism in EOL (funded through Sloan grant to EOL)
  • Working with the Phyloinformatics Research Foundation (stewards of TreeBASE and Tree of LIfe Web Project) to ensure data interoperability between the two projects
