Dr. Eric Lyons is stepping up as CyVerse principal investigator and project leader, having worked with the project since 2010 and has served as co-principal investigator since 2012. Dr. Lyons succeeds Dr. Parker Antin who joined the project in 2013, following renewal of its 5-year, $50M award from the National Science Foundation. The award came with an increase in scope mandate, from providing cyberinfrastructure and training to plant scientists, to providing such for all life sciences. The CyVerse leadership team also is joined by new co-principal investigator Dr. Tyson Swetnam, UArizona research assistant professor of geoinformatics in the BIO5 Institute and member of the Data Science Institute.
