Challenges for collaborative computational technologies

What is it about?

The final chapter of the book "Collaborative computational technologies for biomedical research" which combines 6 perspectives from health economics, drug safety databases, bioassay ontologies, online collaboration and mobile computing.

Why is it important?

Its important because it cuts across so many different areas and was probably the first time I thought about the potential for mobile apps /devices and science. The chapter also reiterates the challenge of getting scientists to share data.

Collaborations in Chemistry

This brought together so many ideas which the book was trying to capture and summarizes the whole project. We even describe the crowdsourcing tail for collaborative databases!
