OSR186 COVID-19 Biohackathon [EN]

With the current situation around the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are several initiatives pushing forward to help finding solutions to successfully fight the virus. The global bioinformatics community is pushing its own efforts and organized the virtual COVID-19 Biohackathon. Starting today, contributors are invited to virtually work together on multiple topics and share their results openly via Github.

“The goal of COVID-19-BH20 is to create a cohesive effort and work on tooling for COVID-19 analysis. The biohackathon will lead to more readily accessible data, protocols, detection kits, protein predictions etc. We will also push for policy change where it comes to non-public or hard to access data because we are facing such challenges!”

Konrad had the chance to talk to one of the organizers, Leyla Jael Garcia-Castro, about the idea and implementation of this endeavor. Enjoy!

OSR178 WikiCite 2020 – Satellite Cologne Preview [EN]

Following the international WikiCite conferences in 2016, 2017 and 2018 the first WikiCite Satellite conference will take place this year in Cologne, Germany. It is organized by ZB MED – Informationcenter for Life Sciences, GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences and TH Köln – University of Applied Sciences and will take place May 6th – 8th 2020 at GESIS in Cologne.
“The event aims to connect local library institutions and academic researchers with the WikiCite community in their shared interest in an open infrastructure about open citations and linked bibliographic data for research and education. WikiCite is a growing bibliographic knowledge base connected to projects of the Wikimedia Foundation such as Wikipedia and Wikidata.”
Listen in to Konrad and Philipp Schaer sharing some information and their expectations. Enjoy!

OSR171 Voices from de-RSE Conference 2019 [EN]

In the first week of June, the first Conference for Research Software Engineering in Germany (deRSE2019) took place in Potsdam, organized by the German Gesellschaft für Informatik (Fachbereich Softwaretechnik) and the German Association for Research Software Engineers (de-RSE). The conference was addressing research software and the people behind it within the German research landscape and aimed to get those diverse group of people together. Over the 3 days there was a multitude of talks – for a number of them recordings will be published by de-RSE.

Since Konrad was participating, he was so kind to collect some voices from the conference floor(s) and a record a short wrap-up with the two conference chairs Carina Haupt and Stephan Janosch.

OSR158 Feelings about and Reflections on Open Science #oscibar [EN]

This is another episode from our coverage of the Barcamp Open Science. In this episode Konrad talked with Peter Kraker (Chairman and founder of the Open Knowledge Maps). This year Peter held a session on a topic that is often overlooked – the feelings of those individuals being involved in the Open Science communities.

OSR140 de-RSE Association and Conference for Research Software Engineers in Germany [EN]

In a joint effort of a group of research software enthusiasts, the association de-RSE e.V. – Gesellschaft für Forschungssoftware was founded in late November 2018. It seeks to provide a new home to the German community of Research Software Engineers and a first major effort is the organization of the deRSE19 – Conference for Research Software Engineers in Germany. We had the pleasure to talk to Carina Haupt and Stephan Druskat about the research software engineer’s profile, the de-RSE association as well as the deRSE19 conference.
