Ready for a rapid, radical reboot of the global innovation system for a truly free and open 21st century knowledge economy?
The Open Science Summit is an attempt to gather all stakeholders who want to liberate our scientific and technological commons and enable a new era of decentralized, distributed innovation to solve humanity's greatest challenges.
Morgan Langille is currently a member of the iSEEM research group supported by the Moore Foundation for improving computational methods for metagenomics data. In particular, he is interested in leverging metagenomics data to improve the classification and prediction of genes with no known functions.
In addition, he is interested in large datasets and improving the accessibility of results, software, and datasets in science. To improve the transfer speeds of data Morgan developed BioTorrents, a website that allows open sharing of scientific data using the popular peer-to-peer BitTorrent sharing program. A manuscript describing BioTorrents was recently published in PLoS One.
