Open Views: Sriram Kosuri,

Sriram Kosuri, OpenWetwareThis week on Open Views Sriram Kosuri, from the OpenWetware project joins me to talk about open source and collaboration models in the nascent field of synthetic biology and biotechnology in general.

Sriram is currently on the Steering Committe and the Board of Directors for OpenWetWare.

OpenWetWare is an effort to promote the sharing of information, know-how, and wisdom among researchers and groups who are working in biology & biological engineering. The initiative aims to foster greater collaboration between member groups, lower the barriers to sharing and dissemination of knowledge in biological research, and to explore how open publication platforms like OpenWetWare can tie into existing reward structures in research.

Join me on Tuesday at 7pm and Thursday at 7am as Sriram Kosuri shares his experiences with free and open models in biotechnology, and how they relate to the free culture and open source worlds.
