The NASA Exoplanet Archive (http://exoplanetarchive.caltech.edu) is housed at the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute (NExScI). It collects and serves public data to support the search for and characterization of exoplanets and their host stars.  The archive is the US portal for the public CoRoT data products, serves Kepler public data products, and serves synoptic data from eight ground-based surveys, including HATNet and TrES. 

The NASA Exoplanet archive provides powerful tools for on-line prediction of transit times and for on-line analysis of light curves, including an interactive time-series viewer. The archive offers a periodogram service that supports three commonly used period detection algorithms, and returns periods of variability phenomena and creates phased photometric light curves. The service can be applied to all archive time-series data or users' own data, to determine periods of variability phenomena and create phased photometric light curves.

I will give a demo of the tools and data.  Time permitting, I will also briefly present an overview of an ongoing synoptic survey of YSOs in Orion and other embedded star-forming regions led by John Stauffer.
