Sun, 11 Jan 2009 09:51:16 PSTJean-Claude Bradley presented on Open Notebook Science at the NIST Social Media Day on December 11, 2008. The talks starts with an overview of ONS and how it is being used to assess solubility measurements being crowdsourced in the ONS Challenge and Submeta Awards. The use of wikis, blogs, Google Spreadsheets, YouTube, Flickr, ChemSpider and other free hosted Web2.0 tools is highlighted. The UsefulChem project, involving the synthesis of anti-malarial agents, is then briefly covered. Finally, a very recent application of using Google Spreadsheets to automatically call web services to calculate volumes and weights of chemicals needed in reactions is demonstrated (code by Rajarshi Guha).

Sun, 24 Aug 2008 10:53:54 PDTThis is a co-presentation by Jean-Claude Bradley and Andrew Lang on August 18, 2008 at the American Chemical Society conference in Philadelphia. The focus is on many of the tools available to easily demonstrate chemistry concepts in Second Life such as 3D molecules, reaction mechanisms, docking, organic chemistry quizzes, 5D graphs, the ACS museum featuring an HIV exhibit, the red tide phenomenon and many others. Most of the content on display rests on ACS island, Drexel Island and Nature's Second Nature island in Second Life.
Fri, 22 Aug 2008 13:26:50 PDTThis talk was presented by Jean-Claude Bradley at the American Chemical Society meeting in Philadelphia on August 20, 2008. An introduction to Open Notebook Science is presented followed by an illustration of how ONS can be used in drug discovery. New data relating to the anti-malarial activity of Ugi products on 2 falcipain-2 docking sites is detailed. The docking calculations were provided by Rajarshi Guha and the enzyme and in vitro assays on Plasmodium falciparum were provided by Phil Rosenthal and Jiri Gut. Most of the syntheses were carried out by Khalid Mirza in the Bradley group.

Fri, 16 May 2008 05:46:17 PDTI talked about Second Life in the chemistry classroom at the Chemical Heritage Foundation on April 29, 2008. This was part of the 8th Annual Leadership Initiative in Science Education (LISE 8). Most examples involve work done in collaboration with Andrew Lang. At the end I invite the group to an in-world meeting on May 6, 2008 at 13:30 EDT on ACS island. (slurl)
Sun, 13 Apr 2008 18:32:37 PDTI present at the American Chemical Society meeting in New Orleans on April 6, 2008. The use cheminformatics tools such as SMILES, InChI, InChIKeys and JCAMP-DX to store and retrieve experimental information on a public laboratory notebook is detailed.
Sun, 13 Apr 2008 18:27:37 PDTI present on using Second Life to teach chemistry at the American Chemical Society meeting in New Orleans April 7, 2008. Examples include using quizzes, generating 3D molecules, visualizing docking, proteins and reactions. An overview of ACS island is also given, with a focus on the Sci-Mix virtual poster session. Much of this work was done in collaboration with Andrew Lang.
Tue, 08 Apr 2008 11:19:48 PDTI presented a talk about Open Notebook Science and the implications for the future of libraries for Heather Morrison's class at the School of Libraries at the University of British Columbia on April 2, 2008. We did this over Skype so the questions are not very clear in the audio.
Thu, 10 Apr 2008 11:39:37 PDTI guest lectured on Rajarshi Guha's cheminformatics course at Indiana University on March 25, 2008. After an introduction to Open Notebook Science and the synthesis of anti-malarial compounds, I discuss SMILES, InChIs, InChIKeys, CMLRSS, JCAMP-DX, JSpecView, ExcelVBA, blogs, wikis and Second Life.
Thu, 10 Apr 2008 11:46:47 PDTHere is my talk at Albright College on March 17, 2008. I mainly discussed the evolution in my use of blogs, wikis and Second Life in the teaching of undergraduate organic chemistry courses.
Mon, 25 Feb 2008 12:31:19 PSTJean-Claude Bradley presents on "Open Notebook Science: Putting the Information User in Control through Transparency" at the NFAIS meeting in Philadelphia on February 24, 2008. This was part of the session on "The Emerging Culture of the New Information Order". The use of public blogs, wikis, GoogleDocs and mailing lists to conduct research on the synthesis of new anti-malarial agents is described.
Thu, 07 Feb 2008 12:27:49 PSTI spoke at the North Carolina Science Blogging Conference (un-conference really) on January 19, 2008. Mainly I reviewed some of my posts on the UsefulChem blog from the past few months to show what types of issues are relevant to doing research openly. I then showed the connection from the blog to the wiki, mailing list and GoogleDocs where the laboratory data get reported and analyzed.
Thu, 29 Nov 2007 03:13:54 PSTOn November 27, 2007 I presented our work on Open Notebook Science. I had a little more time to explain most aspects of our work to a scientific, but not necessarily a chemistry audience.
Thu, 20 Dec 2007 03:14:13 PSTA Beginner’s Guide to Open Science(not for beginners but by beginners)A talk by Cameron NeylonSTFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and School of Chemistry, University of SouthamptonAudio (mp3)Flash ScreencastGoogle VideoPowerpointUpdate: transcript is now availablePresentation at 2:00 Friday November 2, 2007Disque 109, Drexel UniversityThe modern biochemistry or molecular biology laboratory generates large quantities of data that are generally stored across multiple computers attached to multiple instruments. Much of this data is never published and the majority languishes on old computers and is ultimately lost. At a local level this is a frustration for investigators who will often struggle to obtain specific pieces of data produced in their own laboratory. On a larger scale this is becoming a much more serious issue with the obligation of researchers to funding bodies to both preserve research data and make it available to other users increasingly becoming a formal a condition of publicly funded grants. Systems are required that can capture and preserve data along with sufficient information and metadata to make it possible for others to use this data.In parallel with this a movement is growing within the research community that advocates greater openness in providing both the raw data from published studies as well as making available the large quantities of data that are never published. The logical extreme of this approach is Open Notebook Science , pioneered at Drexel University , where the researcher’s laboratory notebook is made available on the internet as it is recorded. Achieving the aims of Open Notebook Science also requires systems which can capture data and provide it in a useful format. In addition these systems must make the data visible to relevant online searches.We are developing and using an electronic laboratory notebook based on a Blog format to capture experimental data in a biochemistry laboratory [3,4]. Within the system each sample is recorded in a single post. Analysis and manipulations of the sample are recorded in separate posts with links back to the input sample and forward to any products. All the information is made immediately available on the Web as it is recorded. The Blog engine has been specially built in house and has a number of features designed to enable and encourage the effective capture of data and metadata in the environment of a biochemistry laboratory. I will describe the Blog system and our evolving approach to capturing metadata as well as the process of integrating this with other web services to provide an open environment for recording work in the laboratory, laboratory materials, and validated procedures. The challenges and problems encountered in reconciling the twin aims of capturing data and making it available and readable will also be discussed along with the similarities and differences emerging between different approaches to Open Notebook Science [2,5,6]. http://drexel-coas-elearning.blogspot.com/2006/09/open-notebook-science.html http://usefulchem.wikispaces.com/ http://chemtools.chem.soton.ac.uk/projects/blog/blogs.php/blog_id/10 http://chemtools.chem.soton.ac.uk/projects/blog/blogs.php/blog_id/13 http://www.jeremiahfaith.com/open_notebook_science/ http://www.michaelbarton.me.uk/[...]
