Frictionless Data improves not just machine readability of scientific articles, but also enables humans to directly interact with the data within the article itself. A new article in GigaByte demonstrates frictionless data can help bring papers to life with interactive figures.

Q&A with Stephen Piccolo talking about ShinyLearner, a benchmarking tool for machine-learning classification algorithms, & how it was tested with CODECHECK
Scott Edmunds - April 7, 2020
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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
