Today, African American activist Angela Davis will be awarded the honorary doctoral degree from the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona.

@Leviatar EEUU 76.9 miliones de dosis, que corresponden (me equivoqué) al 15% de la población con al menos una dose, el 7.7% dos dosis.

En promedio, Francia, Italia y España están todavía entre el 2 y el 3%. Es cierto que hablar de "burocracia" es demasiado generico, pero si que comparando EEUU y UE o comparando los estados europeos con el Reino Unido hay una diferencia brutal.

¿A qué se debe?

@Leviatar si pero cuidado con mezclar cosas. La capacidad de respuesta de la investigación y de la medicina ha sido impresionante, la gestión politica de la crisis en Europa es otra cosa. Si me dices 2% de la población europea, hay que reconocer que el Reino Unido ya ha cubierto el 30% y EEUU el 25%. Es un retraso importante.

@Leviatar Ojalá, el problema es que la burocracia de la UE parece estar retrasando terriblemente la distribución y el subminístro de las dosis. Sin voluntad politica me parece difícil salir de esto...

@VictorVenema Yeah, that would be great. I am rather naive with this stuff and I don't know how admins coordinate with each other.

Often when people want to make their research code open for others to re-use, they apply a creative commons licence.

Awesome, you're off to a great start!

🚨 One hitch: @creativecommons licences aren't designed for code - see

If you used a CC licence for code, don't feel bad!

👉 It's easy to choose an OSI
approved licence - I like:
- to figure out what type of licence I might need
- for easy-to-understand summaries

@VictorVenema as for now, a good option might be to start by connecting all the science-related instances, promote the creation of new servers and elaborate a common strategy.

Mastodon works by aggregating people in distinct servers that are connected in a horizontal network, where people can interact freely.

In research, scientists usually work in research centers and collaborate worldwide in a distributed network.

The two things overlap nicely and could be potentially synergic. If we concentrated our efforts on building a Mastodon instance in every big research institution, we may grow a federated scientific network that is free from commercial apps.

Today I will start with a course I bought online on in . I guess it is one of those situations in which you hear about something that is potentially relevant to your research and you buy a course online to learn how to do that "something" with python.

In its own way, this is so classic bioinformatician...

@migueltorrescosta hey, nice to meet you Miguel. Sorry for late answer, tough week. I will be checking this social more often from now on.

Hi folks! My name is Fabio and I am a computational biologist at Pompeu Fabra University (UF) in Barcelona. I am interested in evolutionary genomics, evo-devo, gene rewiring, transposable elements, python and data visualisation.
