OK this is pretty cool: built-in translation is coming to Mastodon, funded by the European Commission's Next Generation Internet programme.


okay, this is the moment you really need 3D models... but pretty sure I got it correct now... right, the monomer, left the matching polymer. Notice how the CIP stereo annotations are different. This is how R,S annotation works.

@brembs with more than twenty years of experience, I can assure you that showing the advantages had a lot less impact

@magnusmanske there are likely a lot of authors with less than ten articles, I expect

I made a draft flow chart of how to comply with funder open data pilots and mandates; "Will the data
have an open license?" github.com/egonw/open-data/blo

@esty well, yes and no. that's part of the cause of the societal perception... "it's not that bad here, so all's fine"

@esty ha! good point. it was meant in the opposite direction: more vegetation as a sign that earth is healthy.

this is also what scholarly research is about: recording valid reasoning, to remove the false arguments. This must (and is done) with care, and is why research is not always as fast as we like, and why factual explanations need time to evolve.

I read a comment the other day, suggesting the does not exist: "earth has never been greener"

Me thinks back... mmm....

@noctiluca if you're only interesting in the citations, check out OpenCitations, see opencitations.net/ (this data is also flowing into Wikidata/Scholia)

@noctiluca plz have a look at Wikidata/Scholia: scholia.toolforge.org/work/Q41

it does not currently have the full body of literature yet (only some 32M articles), but there is a strong interesting in ensuring it will. It's open infrastructure, with a lot of innovation around it, e.g. check the WikiCite project

it was online for some time already, but the revised version is now online, updating it with early feedback from reviewers

updated preprint "A Systems Biology Workflow to Support the Diagnosis of Inherited Metabolic Disorders: a study on Pyrimidine and Urea Cycle disorders" by @SMaLLCaT4Sci@twitter.com et al.

Exciting work by our PhD candidate on how biological network approaches may be used in the clinic

today there was an interesting discussion at about open, free, sustainability, and usability. These are all different things, that complement each other, not contradict each other
