Crowd Sourcing for Biology
News Feb 13, 2013
The funding will develop and deploy crowd sourcing approaches to complex, large-scale scientific problems within the remit of BBSRC.
Crowd sourcing is a community-based approach to tackling difficult or complex problems. It splits the problem into pieces, distributes the pieces to a large number of individuals (and/or computers), and the completed pieces are returned to a central system to formulate the overall solution.
In recent years crowd sourcing has been deployed to tackle complex problems and to build research community resources. Examples have seen crowd sourcing use to re-design a protein, perform microscopic analysis of biomedical samples and even search for molecules that could make cancer treatment candidates.
The call for research proposals to make use of this funding encompasses establishing the software, organising and conducting crowd sourcing, the generation of high quality bioscience data and creation of new knowledge.
