Collecting and analysing information from increasingly diverse origins is needed to understand complex systems life scientists are studying. This means in particular to mobilize a large number of human and technical resources for acquisition and analysis of data. Regarding human resources, it seems appropriate to involve citizens in research projects. In the meantime, it's clear that the relationship between science and citizens are degraded and for example, it is very difficult for a citizen to have access to the results of research projects and even more to participate to them. Citizen science approaches can be a good way to face these issues, but until now, a majority of citizen science projects are considering citizens only for data production. The "65 millions d'observateurs" project is an interesting French initiative who wants to test involving citizens to others part of the research lifecycle. Can this be the beginning of a Galaxy-E, for Ecology?

Research engineer, INRIA / EnginesOn
Initially a marine Biologist, focusing on Populations structure, Yvan received a PhD on quantitative genetics and genomics in Rennes University. After a one year postdoc at INSERM dedicated to Integrative genomics, he investigated an e-Science approach for Life Sciences during a 3 year postdoc project at INRIA / IRISA Rennes. One of the outcome of this project, called e-Biogenouest, is an innovative Virtual Research Environment (VRE) based on... Read More →
