Bringing OpenSource to the public: OpenTox in Africa

Barry is this week in Africa to demo OpenTox, and took along a VirtualBox appliance with OpenTox REST and ontology servers and Bioclipse preinstalled, and installed things on several machines from local participants. Bringing open source software to potential users is becoming easier every day! Well done to Roman and Nina for creating the appliance and to Barry for getting scientists in Africa into predictive toxicology. (Yes, Africa is very big, but I have been too lazy to look up where he exactly went :)


  1. :) Cameroon - a small place called Buea that's on the slopes of a volcano.

  2. On the slopes of a volcano... how appropriate!
