Scientific Reproducibility - Focusing on Solutions at the Minisymposium on Reproducibility

Posted by Tyler Ford on May 18, 2018 3:32:41 PM

Last Wednesday we worked with the Harvard GSAS Science Policy Group to organize a Minisymposium on Reproducibility. The minisymposium focused on solutions to reproducibility issues in the biological sciences and featured speakers from academia, industry, nonprofits, and publishing. The livestream video from the event can be found below along with a description of the program beneath it. You can jump to the different time stamps in the description to watch any sections you’re particularly interested in, but I’d recommend watching the whole livestream for a more holistic understand of reproducibility issues and their potential solutions.

Prior to this event, I gave my own talk on reproducibility at Addgene and here I summarize what I learned both in preparation for my talk and at the minisymposium. You can find a variety of additional resources and information about organizations promoting reproducibility in this booklet (which was also handed out at the event).

Sharing Your Lab Protocols: Using Apps to Save Time & Track Your Experiments

Posted by Caroline LaManna on Sep 23, 2014 11:05:27 AM

Recently I learned that Addgene’s pLKO.1 cloning protocol is viewed around 3,000 times each month. I looked this up after trying out the new beta platform for sharing, annotating, and storing life science protocols. Since we began sharing this protocol on the Addgene website in December 2006, the pLKO.1-TRC cloning vector (deposited by David Root of the Broad Institute) has consistently been one of the repository’s most frequently requested plasmids. I wondered how many scientists have used the protocol for this plasmid, and if it still being used. After learning of it's continued popularity, I decided this protocol would be a worthy first contribution to the community.

Did I mention that this protocol is being used around the world? In the last month it’s been viewed by users in the US, China, India, Canada, the UK, South Korea, and beyond!
