Lessons learned in the evolution of large-scale data sharing New studies out today elucidate the framework for 1 billion years of green plant evolution. The work are the results of nearly a decades work from an international consortium of nearly 200 plant researchers generating gene sequences from more than 1100 plant species. Here and in […]

Following our “Reproducible Research Resources for Research(ing) Parasites” announcement of a collaboration with protocols.io, we thought we would go into more detail on our first papers integrating their methodologies on this platform. To give some insight into his work, we have one of our author Q&As with first author François Olivier Hébert.

Two new research papers on scabies and tapeworms published today showcase a new collaboration with protocols.io. This demonstrates a new way to share scientific methods that allows scientists to better repeat and build upon these complicated studies on difficult-to-study parasites. It also highlights a new means of writing all research papers with citable methods that can be updated over time.
