What open science is about

Today I got a pleasant surprise: Olga Botvinnik posted on Twitter about a poster she is presenting at the Beyond the Cell Atlas conference and she name-dropped a bunch of people that helped her. The cool thing? They are all open source developers, and Olga interacted thru GitHub to ask for features, report bugs and even submit pull requests.

That's what open science is about: collaboration, good practices, and in the end coming up with something that is larger than each individual piece. Now sourmash is better, bamnostic is better, reflow is better. I would like to see this becoming more and more common =]
