    Cutting Edge: Anatomy of BioJS, an open source community for the life sciences

    Guy Yachdav et al.
    Community nurturing is the single most important factor in determining the sustainability of an open source project such as BioJS.
  2. Point of View: Correcting the bias against interdisciplinary research

    Ehud Shapiro
    When making decisions about funding and jobs the scientific community should recognise that most of the tools used to evaluate scientific excellence are biased in favour of established disciplines and against interdisciplinary research.
  3. Living Science: Grandmother elephants

    Eve Marder
    As new technology makes it possible to perform experiments that were unimaginable a decade ago, Eve Marder argues that we can still learn from the past.
  4. Plain-language Summaries of Research: The value of a healthy relationship

    Bridget M Kuehn
