The research plans submitted by scientists to the RMBL Research Committee (made up of other RMBL scientists) provide an excellent window into the types of research being conducted at RMBL. The visualization below incorporates all digital research plans submitted each year and analyzes them with word cloud software. The more common words appear larger in the cloud giving you some sense of the emphases of RMBL research within a year.
To get a sense of how RMBL research has changed over time, move the slider below to see trends in word usage between 1996 and 2011.
Note: until relatively recently, research plans were not available in digital format - a major reason for disparity in the number of plans shown in this word cloud visualization.
