Interviewed by LabWorm for NCG

Our group has been interviewed by LabWorm regarding our recent publication on Network of Cancer Genes 5.0.

I absolutely love the “artist impression” they made of our team:

LabWorm is a collaborative platform for sharing tools and links related to bioinformatics. They have a very modern and interactive user interface, and they are very active in adding new links and involving people in the platform.

Over my too many years of experience in the bioinformatics field, I saw many attempts at creating collections of bioinformatics tools. Unfortunately many of these failed because of lack of interest or lack of maintenance. However LabWorm seems to be doing things right for the moment, as they really work hard to engage people in their community, and they even publish some blog interviews to researchers.

The bioinformatics community really need a effective way to share tools and links, and I really hope that LabWorm will be successful in their attempt.
