Biodatabases.Com Whitepaper
"Thank you for your interest in the Database Mining in the Human Genome Initiative white paper.

This paper is presented in the spirit of Open Source software. The concept of Open Source software is quite simple - when people on the Internet read, redistribute and update software, it evolves. This white paper will become a living document that will transcend its original boundaries with the addition of your updates, postings and comments.

With your help, this evolving document will define and shape the future of Database Mining in the Human Genome Initiative.

Nature Open-source work even more vital to genome project than to software
"We note with dismay and alarm the controversy concerning access, distribution and patenting of the human genome sequence (Nature 404, 317; 2000 & Nature 404, 324; 2000). We wish to point out some analogies between the human genome sequencing efforts and 'open-source' software development, which have implications for the data-release policy of the public sequencing effort."

"The reasons why the Linux project could succeed against commercial wisdom have been analysed by Eric S. Raymond in his book The Cathedral and the Bazaar (O'Reilly, 1999). Most of these findings are of relevance to academic and commercial benefits arising from human genome sequencing." [via]

Conference Bioinformatics Open Source Conference
"The Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) is the successor to the successful bioperl-99 conference. Like bioperl-99, BOSC is a satellite conference of ISMB, allowing people who are making the trip to San Diego to extend it for a couple of days and talk real code.

BOSC is designed to be open to all the open source efforts in bioinformatics, including Perl, Java, Python, C and C++ - even Fortran would be fun. We don't expect all attendees to be participating in a particular open source project (like, say, biojava), but we do expect that a lot of the people involved in the open source projects in bioinformatics will attend."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
