My-Plant: Social Networking for the Plant Science Community . is a phylogenetically-structured social networking website under development for plant scientists, educators, and other interested parties to come together to share information and research, collaborate, and stay on top of the latest research in their field. My-Plant users can gather around their clades of choice, then view and contribute to information surrounding those clades including but not limited to clade pages, image galleries, message board discussions, wiki pages, and links to external data. Goals include fostering communication and collaboration among plant scientists, discovering novel connections among clades and their data, and developing a community for education, outreach, and training. Acknowledgement: a product of the iPlant Collaborative, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation Plant Cyberinfrastructure Program (#EF-0735191).
