Funding Success for Open Source Project

We've been successful in securing a large government grant with an open source component. The 3-year project concerns the enantioselective synthesis of PZQ for a low price, with the World Health Organisation as partner. (PDF of the Uni Sydney outcomes is here). The funding comes from the Australian Research Council (the main government funding agency in Australia). We wrote the proposal emphasising the possibilities inherent in the open source approach to doing science, and we're very pleased that this was seen as positive by an official grant-funding agency. The funding will allow us to increase our efforts on using TSL to drive our project forward much faster.

Open source licenses registered with FDA?

Published by clarson on 24 March 2008 - 6:01pm

Hello,

I'm quite new to the Synaptic Leap so apologies if this is already covered somewhere that I have missed.

I'm curious if any molecular entities, vaccines or biologics have already been licensed as open source through the FDA or alternative organization?

Kind regards,

Christine

Sharing NMR data with jspecview

Request for Help

The need to share raw NMR data effectively brought up a small technical challenge, and there have been posts about this here and here. Using our transfer hydrogenation result as a random example, we thought we'd try jspecview, and the .dx file is attached to this post. We've been having problems with this, in that the attached is an FID, not the spectrum, and jspecview doesn't like it. Surely an FID is more useful/interesting? Surely it shouldn't matter?

OpenWetWare is a community of thousands of researchers from around the world who freely share their ideas, results, tools, and wisdom. Our project has largely been volunteer driven to date; we are now looking to hire a managing director.
