We will provide recommendations and tools for data submission and data extraction to facilitate the use of commonly adopted formats and to keep pace with the field.

We will coordinate multiple resources and promote the use of large international repositories that require the submission of standards-compliant data. We will establish a pilot demonstration system linking compliant resources. Finally, guidelines will be provided to information system managers in the grapevine community and a registry for the community web services will be identified.
