    Some videos are private, maybe the presenter didn't sign the documents?
    Monica Munoz-Torres
    @monicacecilia
    You are correct, Tony. If the presenter has not given consent, the video will show up as private. :(

    @khokamp emailed all the authors yesterday asking them to sign the consent form if they’d like to to share the video of their talk.

    I hope the #eLifeSprint today and tomorrow goes well, @emmyft! I haven't had a chance to add the zenodo API to our release process yet. I'll be interested to hear if the sprint has any suggestions for making that process easier!

    Hey, dark plains!

    @BenjaminHCCarr
    any updates on BOSC/GCC 2020?
    Looking to get my conference requests in
    yes, I have checked both websites, but no prices / suggested hotels, etc yet
    Nomi Harris
    @nlharris
    Hi Ben, thanks for checking! The dates are all set but the BCC organizers are still working on registration prices and hotels—should be up soon!
    Ben
    @BenjaminHCCarr
    Hi @nlharris! Thanks for the reply, trying to get all my ducks in a row and get my request in early so I can make it this year, BOSC2018 was such a great experience (save Bastian stealing my raffle-headset)

    Someone thank Morgan for the website update for me!
    Just one question, and it's silly/stupid, or at least unlikely...
    Is the student housing $90 a night or $90 for the week?
    As if it is $90 for the week you're going to sell out fast

    Oh @morgantaschuk is here, just not tab-completing! Thank you!
    Monica Munoz-Torres
    @monicacecilia
    Hi Ben.
    I’d assume it is per night.
    I assume this, considering that the other hotels are listed ‘per night’ on the ‘rate' line.
    Otherwise, that would be cheapest uni conference housing I have ever heard of in my life. :smile:
    Nomi Harris
    @nlharris
    It is per night. We will make that clearer on the website.
    Morgan Taschuk
    @morgantaschuk
    I'll do it!
    Ben
    @BenjaminHCCarr
    @monicacecilia like I said, silly question as the others were per night, just needed clarifying, as if it was per week I was staying in a dorm!
    thanks @morgantaschuk
    Morgan Taschuk
    @morgantaschuk
    Done
    Nomi Harris
    @nlharris
    Thanks, Morgan, and thank you Ben for bringing that to our attention. We want to be clear!

    @sbliven
    Hey, maybe someone in this community could help me with this. We have a spreadsheet with a bunch of drugs/compounds that might bind SARS-CoV-2. Are there any quick/easy places to deposit that that might lead to it being found and used by other groups?
    Currently my best idea is to tweet a google doc link, but surely there is something better if only I knew about it

    @kaushik-work
    I don't know, presumably you've have already checked if the NIH has a repository. I know the NIH has several repositories for genomic data.
    Spencer Bliven
    @sbliven
    I searched a little but I'm not even sure what to look for. I worry this might just be one of the places where data that doesn't fit in one of the big categories just becomes unsearchable.
    Kaushik Ghose
    @kaushik-work
    The only that comes to mind is, if you don't care about how it is used, you could find somewhat senior scientists at different pharma companies and email that the sheet. Oddly, I see so many scientists on twitter, putting it out on twitter may be a way to get attention. One thing to keep in mind is if it does become popular, there will be problems if people try and experiment on themselves with compounds on that list (like happened with Quinine).
    Spencer Bliven
    @sbliven
    yeah, something to keep in mind

    :wave: Hope you're well and healthy– just want to let you know that the eLife Innovation Sprint is happening Sep 2–3 in Cambridge, UK (or potentially online... we're watching the situation and learning from the online hackathons!).

    This is a collaborative hackathon where researchers, developers, designers, etc work together to develop open prototypes to change the ways we communicate and share research. More info on https://sprint.elifesciences.org

    We're calling for project proposal submission until April 13! It's a great opportunity to recruit contributors to your open projects, and to connect with folks passionate about open science and changing research culture. Please don't hesitate to DM me if you have any questions. Thank you and take care (:

    @nlharris
    @emmyft Thanks for reaching out! We also got your email, and will discuss with the OBF Board the next time we meet! I hope you and your family and colleagues are all well.
    @sbliven I shared your question with my coworkers, and they had some suggestions—I emailed you at your gmail address.

    @sbliven if you can present those data as an annotation track, this might be another good place for them

    Folks, anyone here used the ART read simulator? I'm trying to figure out 1. if there is a threading options (or does it automatically use multiple threads) and 2. If there is a way to have the read pos data be placed in the qname, instead of a separate alignment file. Thank you!

    Greetings, BOSC Community! As you’ve no doubt heard, BOSC 2020 will be part of the Bioinformatics Community Conference (BCC2020), and will take place online July 19-21.
    Abstract submission is now open (actually, it opened on April 1 but we didn’t advertise it widely) and closes on April 30. Instructions and link to submit on EasyChair here: https://www.open-bio.org/events/bosc/submit/ 🍐🍐🍐

    I might ask in the virtual biohackathon slack channel? https://join.slack.com/t/virtualbiohac-xt62674/shared_invite/zt-cuur40oj-wdrVz50NocwVrH7vgKTdPg

    No more working link

    @OBF_BOSC now has 1990 followers on Twitter. I’m hoping we can get to 2020 followers before the conference!

    how have you not tweeted that from the obf_BOSC account? :laughing:

    @BenjaminHCCarr

    I’ve been asked to write up BOSC/GCC for my group!

    can you attend training if you don’t attend the conference (we may throw $60 for each person anyway as we like open source and BOSC) but I was asked

    it’s not on https://bcc2020.github.io/training/

    Morgan Taschuk
    @morgantaschuk
    @BenjaminHCCarr Sure, you can buy the training separately on the Eventbrite registration page, so I don't see why not.
    Ben
    @BenjaminHCCarr

    thanks @morgantaschuk
    Sad it’s not in person, I had a lot of fun at BOSC/GCC 2018

    Also how am I to get stickers?

    Is anyone organizing a sticker exchange?

    Morgan Taschuk
    @morgantaschuk
    I'm also devastated by the lack of stickers
    Nomi Harris
    @nlharris
    We are all sad that it’s not in person, but glad that we can still have the meeting, and enable people in more parts of the world to attend!
    Michael L Heuer
    @heuermh
    @BenjaminHCCarr Did I hear you volunteer to organize a sticker exchange? :wink:
