Container ship.27th – 28th June, Cambridge (provisional date)

Containers, specially Docker, are the hottest topic at the moment for reproducible research. What impact does the use of containers have on research, how can researchers benefit from them and make their research more reproducible? The Software Sustainability Institute invites all members of the research software community to explore and discuss these and other questions at the Docker Containers for Reproducible Research Workshop from 27th to 28th June 2017 (date tbc) at Cambridge.

The Software Sustainability Institute’s Docker Containers for Reproducible Research Workshop will bring together researchers, developers, innovators and educators to explore best practices when using containers and the future of research software with containers. C4RR aims to gain insight into the topics of containers technologies and how these impact and will impact on research. It is also an ideal opportunity to form collaborations.

By Scott Edmunds, Executive Editor at GigaScience.

With greater awareness of the difficulties in making scientific research more reproducible, numerous technical fixes are being suggested to move publishing away from static and often not reproducible papers - which have changed little since the 17th century - to more reproducible digital objects that better fit 21st century technology. New research in the Open Access journal GigaScience demonstrates a potential approach through publishing open data and code in containerised form using Docker, and also allowing scientists to tackle another scourge of the 21st century – climate change, through better understanding of the production of biofuels.

One of the most promising areas in biofuel development is biogas, which has huge potential as a renewable and clean source of energy. Biogas is the production of methane gas through the anaerobic digestion (fermentation) of organic matter such as agricultural or food waste. Detailed knowledge on the functioning of the fermentation process is key for optimising this process. However, the vast majority of the microbes involved remain unknown and cannot be cultivated in laboratories.

In new research just published in GigaScience, researchers from Bielefeld University in Germany have now characterised the complex communities of micro-organisms in a biogas plant that generates heat and power from maize silage and pig manure. The authors made their research more…
