Abstract

In 2016-7, The University of Western Australia Library partnered with researchers in the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology to produce cropPAL2, a database providing the subcellular locations for proteins in crops significant for food production. The project team consisted of computational biologists, software engineers and a librarian, in which the library contributed expertise in developing search strategies, research data management and enhancing discoverability of cropPAL2 and its dataset. The Library continues to be a key player in this collaboration, a first for the University of WA, both in the innovative process and as a key driver in directing the development of commercial software for the wider benefit of researchers at UWA and beyond.
