DCN-66: “Geometries for Minnesota Database 2019”, a chemistry database, was submitted to the DCN by Valerie Collins and curated by Xuying Xin.

This was a high quality dataset. Xuying’s recommendations included converting files to a more accessible format, updating the dataset’s documentation to include variable definitions and reconciling or explaining the differences in file names listed in the associated manuscript and those in the actual database.

Due to the Xuying’s expertise minimal curation actions were taken (small metadata or documentation edits/additions) – updated documentation better describing the contents of the database was provided and the metadata was updated.

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!
