    1. This article argues that it is high time not only to acknowledge Wikipedia's quality but also to start actively promoting its use and development in academia.

      This argment is carried on in the Wikipedia Weekly facebook forum https://www.facebook.com/groups/wikipediaweekly/permalink/2538506099530539/

    2. Linus's Law: “given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow,”

    1. nly 37 butterfly species in 6 families including 5 swallowtails (Papilionidae) have had their reference genomes dissected

      In July 2019 whole genome data for more than 160 representatives of skipper butterflies was published, although these were not de novo genome assemblies https://doi.org/10.3897/zookeys.861.34686

    1. FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) principles
    2. Genome Sequence Archive (GSA)

      Database URL is here: http://gsa.big.ac.cn/

      Note: metadata is INSDC format, but this database isn't part of the INSDC, so you'll still need to submit your data to one of those databases to meet internationally recognised mandates

    1. Accession codes

      The panda and polar bear datasets should have been included in the data section rather than hidden in the URLs section. Production removed the DOIs and used (now dead) URLs instead, but for the working links and insight see the following blog: http://blogs.biomedcentral.com/gigablog/2012/12/21/promoting-datacitation-in-nature/

    1. To date 5'-cytosine methylation (5mC) has not been reported in Caenorhabditis elegans, and using ultra-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) the existence of DNA methylation in T. spiralis was detected, making it the first 5mC reported in any species of nematode.

      As a novel and potentially controversial finding, the huge amounts of supporting data are depositedhere to assist others to follow on and reproduce the results. This won the BMC Open Data Prize, as the judges were impressed by the numerous extra steps taken by the authors in optimizing the openness and easy accessibility of this data, and were keen to emphasize that the value of open data for such breakthrough science lies not only in providing a resource, but also in conferring transparency to unexpected conclusions that others will naturally wish to challenge.
