PLOS Open Source Toolkit Channel Prize 2018.
The Channel Editors have nominated 4 of their top Editor’s Picks since the launch of the channel a year ago and you now have the opportunity to vote for your favourite paper. The winning authors will receive a US$500 prize.
The shortlisted papers were:
1. Lake et al: Low-cost feedback-controlled syringe pressure pumps for microfluidics applications
2. Nuñez et al: Low cost and open source multi-fluorescence imaging system for teaching and research in biology and bioengineering
3. McKenzie & Grover: A microfluidic thermometer: Precise temperature measurements in microliter- and nanoliter-scale volumes
4. Pavlosky et al: Validation of an effective, low cost, Free/open access 3D-printed stethoscope
Terminó el segundo taller de open hardware en Santiago de Chile, en el que ensamblamos microscopios FlyPi y “ponchitos” (tal como llama Ariel Lutenberg a los shields) para reacciones isotermales. Mil gracias a nuestros instructores André Chagas y Ben Paffhausen y a nuestros patrocinadores Instituto Milenio MIISSB, FONDAP-CRG y VRI-PUC

The ability to use, study, replicate, and improve scientific instrumentation is a central part of experimental science, and plays a crucial role in public life, research, and action. However, these activities are currently restricted by proprietary instrumentation, which is difficult and expensive to obtain and maintain, since they cannot be fully inspected, evaluated, or customized. This situation is fundamentally detrimental to the production of knowledge and its potential for creating equitable and sustainable solutions. The Open Science Hardware (OScH) community therefore seeks to bring together developers and users of scientific tools and research infrastructures to support the pursuit and growth of knowledge through global access to hardware for science.
This document describes what is required for Open Science Hardware to become ubiquitous by 2025, laying out challenges and opportunities and recommending concrete actions. These actions include:
- Creating institutional and funding support structures
- Preparing guidelines for hardware designers, funders, users and newcomers on key aspects of OScH development, such as quality control and standards compliance, licensing, documentation standards, and social and ethical aspects of scientific work
Involving the members of the OScH community in the task of elaborating an assessment framework for OScH projects
- Using the results of collaborative research to build a common pool of open educational resources
- Creating mentorship programs and support networks to increase diversity in the OScH community
Este taller se desarrolló en la Universidad Austral con la participación de Tim Rudge, Mihails Delmans and Daniel Luhr. Se dictaron tutoriales de Rapsberry Pi, Beagle board, FluoPi, LOOP DNA assembly, OpenSCAD y uCube.
Nota en Austral Valdivia.
Finalizó con éxito el primer taller tutorial de Golden Gate, Gibson Assembly y LOOP assembly para fabricar vectores de ADN a gran escala, bajo costo, libre acceso y de manera simple. Se evaluó la importancia de contar con herramientas open source para la fabricación de herramientas genéticas y el rol que cumpliría un openMTA para articular interacción universidad-sociedad de manera libre. Libertad de acceso a las herramientas creadas con fondos públicos!
