The team

The main concepts of molTERdb were discussed during the ESF-MOLTER funded workshop
“A prototype for a MOLTER (MOLecular structures as drivers and tracers of TERrestrial C fluxes) database” (May 19-2010, Oslo, Norway).

The realization of this prototype platform was performed by Irstea from 2010 to 2012
(Irstea is the National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture, Grenoble, France) .

We are now discussing venues for larger proposals to support the development of the computational database with new partners. If you are interested in joining our efforts, please contact us and JOIN THE TEAM !
