more on open source science

As I mentioned previously, I started an open source science blog to plan and execute on applied chemistry projects. A few problems were brought up, including specific issues involving arsenic in drinking water, malaria and HIV.

During the past week, I am happy to report that several people (mainly from the find-a-drug folks) have offered to help and one Russian programmer has written and posted useful code to process chemical information from Chemsketch. I have created a separate blog to collect information we will need (such as commercial availability and price) about specific molecules necessary for the synthesis of the anti-malaria candidates initially. We are getting close to getting the syntheses started.

I was also happy to find that open source science is getting more press. Read this Nature article for example.
