Science in the 21st century is increasingly data-driven thanks to soaring computational power and sophisticated analysis techniques. Researchers gather, manipulate and interpret data in every imaginable way to build a foundation for new discoveries. The importance of preserving and making these research data accessible has become a highly charged topic of discussion. How will these data be stored, preserved and mined effectively and efficiently?
