It’s that time of the month again! No, not THAT time… it’s Bio::Blogs time!
This edition was whipped up in a record breaking couple of days and the contributions poured in quickly which just shows that the bioinformatics blog realm is in good health. That said, let’s get to business.
THE TOOLS OF PREDICTION
Also on the topic of prediction tools, we have a great post by newcomer Pawe? from Freelancing Science that discusses publication quality pictures of biomolecules and the tools used. Aside from this post, keep your eyes open for some great commenting going on there.
GETTING PISD WITH OPEN SCIENCE
A topic that made waves in the open science pool this month was the creation of a so called coalition against the open access/science movement – PRISM. And like Newton’s laws require, the reactions popped up far and widespread. There was even room for some spoofing (who said scientists can’t have fun?!).
STRUCTURES, PUBLISHING & RESEARCH IN SCIENCE
A big topic of interest this year at SciFoo was the structuring of scientific data on the internet (keep an eye on Google!). Deepak Singh from bbmg has a good overview of this subject and more, give a look.
Kay from Suicyte Notes has a thoughtful post regarding scientific research approaches. A good read!
Like I said in the beginning of this post, the bioinformatics blog scene is healthy and growing and to prove it I’d like to present you all to three new memebers of this community:
- Pawe? Szcz?sny from Freelancing science who offers us some of his “mumbling about bioinformatics, protein analysis and open science”
- Keith from Open.nfo and his blog “about bioinformatics, linux, open-source software, open science and a little bit a few other things I find interesting.”
- And bio.struct that will be “navigating the world of structural and computational biology … and other random topics”
That’s it for this edition of Bio::Blogs. I hope you enjoyed reading my picks and finally I’d like to thank Pedro for inviting me to host this edition.
