    @sbliven i'll keep you updated regarding remote participation at the eLife Sprint - we can't stream the whole thing, but there're definitely options for remote contributions via some combinations of Github + slack /gitter + VC within groups (: anyone else who happens to read this and wants to do join remote, let me know!

    Sounds good. I created a first draft BioJava CFF biojava/biojava#846

    I am incredibly happy to see work from CoFest still being carried on :+1:

    Same!

    Ah, the chicken and egg problem with a DOI in a CFF file needing to be committed, but only getting a Zenodo DOI after doing the commit, was troubling me too.
    And like @sbliven, for Biopython currently it would be easier to have just a non-version specific paper's DOI, but I didn't see how to do that.

    @mr-c
    @peterjc You saw the comments about from Mateusz about reserving a DOI from Zenodo? Also, you can use the unversioned "parent" DOI from Zenodo
    Peter Cock
    @peterjc
    That sounds promising, hopefully Spencer can work this out for BioJava, and I can follow their example ;)

    You guyyyyys, I just want to say that ever since BOSC 2019 brought Nicky Mulder to my field of view, I haven’t stopped catching eye of her awesomeness. I’m listening to another talk from her right now, about her work with the team at H3Africa https://h3africa.org/

    Some recordings of talks are available on ISCB's youtube channel now!

    @raonyguimaraes
    @tonyyzy awesome!
    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. :(

    @yochannah
    (so if you're reading this chat and you want to share your video, make sure you have signed consent to share it :D )
    Nomi Harris
    @nlharris
    @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)
    Monica Munoz-Torres
    @monicacecilia
    :laughing:
    Ben
    @BenjaminHCCarr
    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
    https://bcc2020.github.io/location/#lodging
    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
