The study of a species of switch grass, Miscanthus, and its potential use as a biofuel is addressed in this data curation profile. Specifically, the graduate student studies how Miscanthus cycles nutrients, nitrogen, and carbon and achieves high yields compared to other perennial crops. Although the she recognizes the importance of sharing her data to the greater research community, she is unsure of the resources available to make sharing possible. For her data to be most useful to others it would need to be connected to the article that contains her methodology in generating and working with the data.
