The VMR CRE is an ecosystem of components. Many teams have contributed to this ecosystem, starting with the European Union’s COST initiative, Interedition (2008-2012), providing the CollateX collation engine and initial work on variant graph display. Components from The Workspace for Collaborative Editing project, funded between 2010-2013, contribute major functionality including, from the Institute for Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing (ITSEE) at the University of Birmingham, the primary work on the TEI guidelines and Collation Editor, and from the University of Trier providing the web-based WYSIWYM TEI editor for manuscript transcription. Finally the Virtual Manuscript Room project, jointly funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the Institut für neutestamentlische Textforschung (INTF), contributed the cataloging, image management, indexing, reconciliation, bibliography, project management, collaboration, and overall framework design and infrastructure to the system. The VMR CRE was developed under the supervision of Hugh Houghton and David Parker toward the PhD thesis, Software for the Collaborative Editing of the Greek New Testament by Troy A. Griffitts.
