What is a SCNBase data curator?

A data curator has expertise in bioinformatics or experience with GMOD tools and JBrowse.  The fastest way to get your data loaded into SCNBase is for a member of each group to familiarize themselves with standard file upload forms.  For more complex training to ensure this community grows, contact Andrew Severin. 

Who supports SCNBase.org?
