additional comments left by OWW users in this section:

  • I didn\'t understand what you meant by private/public - is that a wiki were you have to register to edit versus no registration required for editing?

    What do you define as Open Science community? Also couldn\'t answer that question.
  • I am looking to enter the field of biological sciences, medicine and synthetic biology and would like to hear from different members of the community the best route towards this goal?
  • Not really, stumbled upon an Endy lecture - bring me a beer.
