We have a galaxy of open research stars giving talks at this year’s edition of Publishing Better Science through Better Data (#scidata16). And if you have a great example of research data sharing or reuse, you could be joining them. Read more
Blog from Mathias Astell and Iain Hrynaszkiewicz on the difficulties in sharing non-public clinical data and a set guidelines being developed by Scientific Data to help researchers, repositories and journal editors best provide access to, and awareness of, clinical data.
Guest post from Ruedi Aebersold, Professor of Systems Biology with a joint appointment at ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, & George Rosenberger, PhD student in the Aebersold group at the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology, ETH Zurich, on the various avenues for sharing proteomics data and the benefits of building community resources through open data
Guest post from Mark Viant, on the changes in standards and reporting for metabolomics data. Mark is Professor of Metabolomics in the School of Biosciences at the University of Birmingham, UK, and Director of both the national NERC Biomolecular Analysis Facility – Metabolomics and the Phenome Centre Birmingham. His research interests encompass the development of optimised analytical and computational workflows for high-throughput mass spectrometry based metabolomics and the application of these technologies to investigate the metabolic pathways underlying toxicity and adverse outcome pathways.
Daniele Marinazzo is an associate professor at the University of Ghent in the department of Data Analysis of the Faculty of Psychology and Pedagogical Sciences. In this interview he discusses the benefits of data reuse and discusses his own experiences of finding and reusing data. Read more
In 2010, BANTER started with a “tweet-up” (which is exactly what it sounds like, a meet-up of people who know each other from twitter) at a bar in San Diego during the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN). Natural born entertainer, @doc_becca, decided to make this a standard feature of the unofficial SfN program and ever since, BANTER has been an increasing success with neuroscience “tweeps” and bloggers. I ran some @symplur analytics for #sfn15 (official twitter hashtag for the main conference) to get this great dataviz on tweeps using the tag from Sept 16–Nov 16. There are more than 40 people among the top #sfn15 tweeps who also attended BANTER, which is a nice correlation. Are you in the picture? Read more
