BioSharing Registry of Standards survey - your input required

by Peter McQuilton

Dear RDA-BioSharing WG members, As you may recall, in December we launched a 10 question survey to assess the needs for a *registry of standards in the life and biomedical sciences*, to help enhance BioSharing as part of our work in the ELIXIR and NIH BD2K infrastructure programmes. Despite a good response so far, we feel we can do better! Could we ask to you /*c*//*omplete the survey (if you haven't already) and disseminate it*/ among your peers? I have copied some text below, that you may wish to use when spreading the word.
