Reproducible research in molecular biophysics and structural bioinformatics

Speaker: Konrad Hinsen, CNRS Orléans (Centre de Biophysique Moleculaire) and Synchrotron Soleil, Gif-sur-Yvette

Host: Nathalie Reuter/CBU

Abstract: Paper retractions and research scandals related to computational procedures have created an increasing awareness for the need to make computational results in science reproducible: all the input data and all the software used in a research project should be published along with the results, permitting a step-by-step verification of the computations. Reproducibility creates specific challenges for scientists working on biological macromolecules, which are related to the complexity and size of the data sets. I will present these challenges and propose possible solutions.
