DCN-50: Action current data for investigating the development and organization of GnRH neuron activity in mice, a neuronal dataset, was submitted by Rachel Woodbrook and curated by Seth Erickson and Susan Borda.

Rachel submitted this dataset to the DCN looking for technical and disciplinary expertise. Seth was the best available match and was willing to accept the challenge!

Overall, this was a high quality dataset, but Seth did have a few recommendations including enhancing the documentation and including some additional analysis code. The data author accepted Seth’s recommendations and as a result of his expertise major curation actions were taken (files updated/added, metadata edited/added).

For more information see the linked dataset identifier above. Thank you Seth, Susan and Rachel!

The purpose of this Dataset Digest series of blog posts is to keep our followers informed and up to date on the curation activities of the DCN! These weekly updates will summarize datasets that have been curated by the network. Once a dataset is “finalized” (curation is complete, any necessary updates or changes have been made, and the dataset has been made publicly available via the local partner repository) we add it to our website and include it in our weekly digest. Thank you for following our progress!
