Full Description

Social scaffolding is crucial for new technologies, standards, and practices in scientific research. This chapter analyzes the development of two effective forms of sociality involved in digital data dissemination that have political and epistemic visibility and power in contemporary biology: ontology consortia and steering committees for model organism communities.
