First Open Source Malaria paper might be of interest to a number of people in this community: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/acscentsci.6b00086, along with a lay summary in The Conversation (https://theconversation.com/making-drug-development-less-secretive-could-lead-to-quicker-cheaper-therapies-64744) and a "Credit Reel" blog post giving the back story (https://intermolecular.wordpress.com/2016/09/14/open-source-malarias-first-paper/). By chance this coincided with the release yesterday of the report of the UN High Level Panel on Access to Medicines (http://www.unsgaccessmeds.org/final-report/) which says "the world must take bold new approaches to ... health technology innovation".

I'm happy to announce that DASH (the Harvard open-access repository) just passed the milestone of 10 million downloads.

Access over 1.1 million human genomic datasets with 1-click

Repositive is the essential portal that helps researchers access genomics data and connect with the research community. By connecting over 39 different global data sources we enable researchers to browse and query over 1.1 million human genomic datasets. By building a community around all this data, we aim to encourage discussions, sharing and collaboration.

Facilitating faster consumption of higher quality data and sharing knowledge openly is at the very heart of our mission and we have a vision of putting the power of genomic data into the hands of many. The more data we index and the more users who join the community simply gives the collective even more ‘super powers’. The power to find more data quickly, collaborate on science and make incredible discoveries.

Therefore, we affectionately describe Repositive as ‘your connection to the genomics collective’

Edward Mallon has designed an open source Arduino-powered underwater data logger for environmental monitoring. Since beginning the project, Edward has successfully assembled over 100 “Cave Pearl” data loggers despite having no previous experience in electronics. What’s more, each “Cave Pearl” can operate for a full year on just three AA batteries. Great use of open hardware!
