Use our data for synthesis or re-analysis!

For the last few years we’ve been committed to making our data, code and metadata available in the public domain for re-use without any obligation to include us. We recognize the importance of having all of our observations available for synthesis efforts. Equally, if you feel our data should have been analyzed differently, and wish to challenge or build on our conclusions, we welcome such opportunities as an important part of the scientific process to ensure knowledge generation moves forward as efficiently and effectively as possible. No paper is perfect and plurality is the hallmark of good science.

Our webpage is new as of April 2019 and so we include links below to only some of our datasets. Check back soon to find links to more published datasets as we build our site.
