Pratt Conference Room, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, 60 Garden Street
Abstract:As the flagship next-generation optical survey telescope, LSST promises to be a significant instrument for a range of research domains. In this talk I'll discuss why LSST is uniquely placed to transform the way that researchers collaborate around research software and data.
This talk was delivered to the Sage Bionetworks Commons Congress by Alyssa Goodman in April, 2011. The goal was to very briefly explain the "Seamless Astronomy" approach to the group building up the "Sage" Commons. The Sage Commons will be a "revolutionary accessible information platform to define the molecular basis of disease and guide the development of effective human therapeutics and diagnostics."
