.@github announces citable code, free private academic accounts, and recaps our open science hackathon!
GitHub is being used today to build scientific software that's helping find Earth-like planets in other solar systems, analyze DNA, and build open source rockets. Seeing these projects and all this momentum within academia has pushed us to think about how we can make GitHub a better tool for research. As scientific experiments become more complex and their datasets grow, researchers are spending more of their time writing tools and software to a...

That's too bad. The previous 7 years have been truly awesome each time.

The good news is that +Open Bioinformatics Foundation has been accepted, after having had to sit out last year. Yay!
 
Dear all.

Unfortunately, our application for this year's Summer of Code was rejected.

We realise this is a real disappointment. The SoC is not only a chance to get great students, but also gives us all an opportunity for new collaborations, and get more of an an insight into our respective specializations.

But don't give up now !  Many of the ideas that you (the NESCent mentors) posted on the NESCent GSoC 2014 page could easily fit the remit of one of the organisations that will be participating in this year's SoC.

To that end - I've added some links to the bio/science/math related organisations to help you repurpose your ideas if you'd still like to act as a mentor this year.

Unfortunately, NESCent didn't get accepted as an Organization for the GSoC 2014. If you are a student interested in working on one of the project ideas below, or any of the others on this wiki, then you should contact the mentor, and submit your application to one of the bioinformatics-related ...

Today is the last day to get PhyloSoC project ideas up on the wiki - the deadline for the org applications is tomorrow! We have a pretty small list at the moment, so if you have something in mind, please do put it up on the wiki.

http://informatics.nescent.org/wiki/Phyloinformatics_Summer_of_Code_2014#Project_Ideas
We are getting ready to submit an organizational application for GSoC 2014! Rather than mentoring students in a single open-source project, NESCent is an umbrella organization for many projects in evolutionary informatics. This means that NESCent projects use a wide variety of technologies and ...

An absolutely outstanding talk by open science advocate Dr. C. Titus Brown. 

Be sure to catch his reply to questions at 44 mins.

When I hear talks like this I understand why I love the bioinformatics community.

I wonder why they found easily recognizable seemingly more important than easily reusable.
 
The Plant Journal requests that all supplementary data are submitted in an "easily recognizable format such as EXCEL, PDF or WORD". This is a terrible idea, none of these formats are suited for data. I guess those nexus files are going to be PDFs, then? Sigh.

We will - this is just for the review process. Dryad and TPJ don't have an agreement whereby data can be submitted before publication, so we'll do it upon acceptance.

BOLD is really lax in sticking to community standards such as FASTA and Newick, requiring custom parsers to deal with their garbled output. Tsk.

Is fasta actually a standard? I'd love to see the BN form. :-)

All stars deserved :-)
 
PCWorlds has reviewed Paperpile. We got five stars :)

"Paperpile is a reference manager that's worth its price, and will only get better from here."

"There are enough hardships in academic life without having to fight with references and citations, and Paperpile is the first service I’ve used that makes this truly painless."

"Sounds too good to be true? It did to me too [...]"
