Reproducible Classification. Q&A on ShinyLearner & the CODECHECK certificate, pt. 2

- April 8, 2020

ShinyLearner

This week we showcased a new way of peer reviewing software, testing code in an independent manner and providing a CODECHECK “certificate of reproducible computation” when the results in the paper can be reproduced. We’ve written a post on the CODECHECK process featuring a Q&A with CODECHECK founder Stephen Eglan, and here we’ll provide a follow […]

Certified Reproducibility. Q&A on ShinyLearner & the CODECHECK certificate, pt. 1

- April 7, 2020

CODECHECK certificate

Out today in GigaScience is ShinyLearner, a new tool to make it easier to perform benchmark comparisons of classification algorithms. This tool stands out by making this process super systematic and reproducible, and despite needing to interface with many different libraries and languages it uses software containers (and a CodeOcean demo) so end users don’t […]

iMicrobe: Fostering Community-Driven Science and Data Discovery. Q&A with Bonnie Hurwitz

- August 2, 2019

In this data-driven era, research is faced with new challenges, from sharing, storing and accessing data, including how to better integrate data to answer big questions in science. With many data repositories available, it is hard to maintain them all – some repositories are forced to close – meaning loss of access to invaluable datasets.  […]

GigaBlog meets Gigantum: Guest Post from Tyler Whitehouse, Dean Kleissas and Dav Clark

- June 20, 2019

At GigaScience as our focus is on reproducibility rather than subjective impact, it can be challenging at times to judge this in our papers. Targeting the “bleeding edge” of data-driven research, more and more of our papers utilise technologies, such as Jupyter notebooks, Virtual Machines, and Containers such as Docker. Working these tools in to […]

Meet the GigaScience ICG Prize Winner, Pt. 2: Lisa Johnson Q&A

- December 14, 2018

ICG prize winner

Yesterday we published the winning paper of the second GigaScience prize, with additional detail and coverage in GigaBlog describing why we and the judging panel found it so novel. This was an impressively case study in reproducibility, reassembling & reannotating around 700 microbial eukaryotic transcriptomes to demonstrate this approach can aid in revealing new biologically relevant […]

Research Parasites Wanted. Q&A with Casey Greene & Brian Byrd

- September 14, 2017

As a journal focussed on open science we are big promoters of research parasites (and research on parasites), and try to feeds them with open data and tools. It is therefore appropriate this is the second year GigaScience has supported and sponsored the Research Parasite awards. In one of our Q&As, organisers Casey Greene and […]
