    Hello Everyone,
    I am passing along this update from the iSamples project. We have created
    a newsletter on the project progress and thought it might be of interest to
    this community. You can view the newsletter in our Zenodo community space:
    iSamples is a 4 year, NSF funded project to build cyberinfrastructure that
    intends to revolutionize discoverability and the management of material
    samples. This newsletter contains updates on the project which includes:

    Prototype of iSamples Central web interface

    Draft core metadata model for

    Upper level controlled vocabularies for Specimen Type, Material Type,
    and Sampled Feature .
    You can provide feedback on these items by creating an issue on GitHub
