- Contribute to current projects (below) or even start new ones!
There are lots of things needed, but the main thing is experimental input. If you're a scientist with access to a lab, open source drug discovery needs you. If you want to know what open source drug discovery is, go here. For anyone new to the project here is a short guide to using the Electronic Lab Notebook.
Currently there are three active projects on-going:
- GSK arylpyrrole series - plus a human-readable summary of the current project status.
- GSK Triazolourea Singleton
- GSK Amino-thienopyrimidine Series
Project entries will be listed at link in above menu.
- Todd Group at the University of Sydney
- Medicines for Malaria Venture
- Sanjay Batra at CDRI India
- OSDDm project at OSDD CDRI
- Avery Group at Discovery Biology, Griffith University
- Ralph Group, Bio21, Melbourne
- GSK Tres Cantos, Spain
This is a wiki, meaning it's meant as a site for how projects are going. For discussion try The Synaptic Leap, or the project's Google+ page, and for updates try the Twitter feed and Facebook Page. If you would like access to the Twitter or G+ accounts because you've become a member of the project please email OSDD.Malaria@gmail.com.
Relevant papers are available in the Mendeley group, to which anyone can add.
