OPEN ACCESS TO PUBLICLY FUNDED RESEARCH: PUBLISHERS ARE ACTING UP

January 7, 2012 - 16:38 -- Tom Olijhoek

 While in Europe the European ‘s Commission Digital Agenda is paving the way for Open Access to publicly funded research data (Data Access ) and Publications (OpenAire plus), the political landscape in the US looks quite differently.

Seeing Red in Molecular Biology Labs

January 1, 2012 - 11:08 -- Mark Benedict

Quick question: For those of you who work in a recombinant DNA lab, what is the most hazardous chemical that you use on a daily basis? To put it another way, what chemical do you ALWAYS wear gloves to handle? Probably the same one that I do, but risk perception and reality aren’t always the same thing.

 

When it comes to genetic control of mosquitoes, risks are a hot topic, so it’s useful to consider the answer to this question.

MalariaWorldThe present study confirms the potential of Pf332 as a target antigen for parasite neutralizing antibodies, and further indicates that epitopes within the C231 region of Pf332 should constitute important tools in the dissection of the role of Pf332 in the biology of the malaria parasite, as well as in the design of a malaria vaccine.

 • Information is now a social asset and should be made public, for anyone to link, organize, and make more valuable.

• There’s no such thing as “too much” information. More information gives people the hooks to find what they need.

The Truth About GM Mosquitoes Is Not Enough

November 14, 2011 - 18:25 -- Mark Benedict

Can we be confident that if we get the facts out that genetic control of mosquitoes will be accepted for testing to prevent diseases? In the face of anti-GM activists, scientists have their hands tied by an intractable force – a professional demand to simply present the facts. Should scientists become more persuasive by becoming activists?

While the use of geospatial data to inform national malaria programs is gaining popularity, this country-level data is not well known in the global malaria community. Country-level and regional maps that focus on progress and prospects towards malaria elimination are now available through two new publications from the Global Health Group at the University of California, San Francisco and the Malaria Atlas Project at the University of Oxford.
