The Need for a New Tool InVEST is a family of tools to map and value the goods and services from nature which are essential for sustaining and fulfilling human life. *UPDATE* Now includes models for COASTAL and MARINE environmental services. If properly managed, ecosystems yield a flow of services that are vital to humanity, including the production of goods (e.g., food), life support processes (e.g., water purification), and life fulfilling conditions (e.g., beauty, recreation opportunities), and the conservation of options (e.g., genetic diversity for future use).
Summary: Dynamic access and visualization of scientific data repositories Description: rOpenSci is a collaborative effort to develop R-based tools for facilitating Open Science. Projects in rOpenSci fall into two categories: those for working with the scientific literature, and those for working directly with the databases. Visit the active development hub of each project on github, where you can see and download source-code, see updates, and follow or join the developer discussions of issues. Most of the packages work through an API provided by the resource (database, paper archive) to access data and bring it within reach of R’s powerful manipulation.

The Green Algae Tree of Life (GrAToL) is a project involving the collaboration of five institutions to understand the evolutionary relationships of all of the major groups of green algae, a diverse group of more than 14,000 photosynthetic species worldwide. Green algae are abundant and play important roles in a wide variety of terrestrial and aquatic habitats, including deserts, extremely salty ponds, and coral reefs, and several species are symbiotic partners with lichens and animals. Thus, green algae are important primary producers in most ecosystems. Green algae are diverse in form - from microscopic single cells to large seaweeds - and function as important primary producers in most ecosystems. The project will employ DNA sequence data to assemble a tree of life reflecting the evolutionary history of the group.

This article or section is a stub . A stub is an entry that did not yet receive substantial attention from editors, and as such does not yet contain enough information to be considered a real article. In other words, it is a short or insufficient piece of information and requires additions. Work on this piece started on January 2012. I should include some literature review on chosen topics, in particular with respect to topics like "how do participants learn", "in what respect are citizens creative", "what is their motivation", "how do communities work".
Hackathons, Interoperability, Phylogenies (HIP) , a NESCent working group, envision the future as a virtual phyloinformatics bazaar in which comparative data and phylogenies are saved, shared, annotated, liked, re-used, aggregated, mashed up, and linked in. In pursuit of this vision, the working group will stage a series of hackathons (intensive participant-driven code-development meetings) that empower early-career scientists to build the links of an emerging network of interoperable evolutionary resources . Hackathons - A hackathon is an event in which programmers ("hackers") meet to do collaborative programming. Hackathons naturally attract early-career researchers, and they provide a unique experience that combines learning, achievement and teamwork. Members of the HIP leadership team have extensive experience organizing and participating in hackathons (including 6 years of NESCent hackathons, as well as other bioinformatics hackathons).
