GigaBlog brings you news on the issues surrounding large scale biological and biomedical data from the GigaScience team (and guests).

We cover the latest papers and datasets published in the GigaScience journal and associated GigaDB database, and news on technical developments with our data analysis platforms. GigaBlog also tackles wider issues surrounding scientific ‘big data’, data publication and citation, open data and open science, as well as peer review and the future of scholarly communication.
