Other talks of interest
This is a list of just some of the talks that are happening on campus that relate to biology, genetics, and genomics.
The GigaScience platform has already been involved in releasing data during the deadly 2011 German E. coli outbreak which aided a global crowdsourcing effort that led to groups around the world, and even bloggers outside of the usual academic environment, to contribute analyses to an open-source GitHub based repository. Many still unpublished genomes have been released to the global community, and workflows and software from a number of scientific papers have been archived and shared in as open, reproducible, transparent and usable form as possible.
With data citation producing evidence of its use in the wider research community, GigaScience hopes to revolutionize the publication model with the aim of executable publications, where data analyses can be reproduced and built upon by users without a coding background or heavy computational infrastructure in a more democratized manner.
Scott Edmunds is a biochemist and geneticist. He was senior scientific editor for the BMC Genomics and Bioinformatics journals before moving in 2010 to set up the GigaScience journal, database and data analysis platform for the BGI in China.
