New Wiki History feature

Happy New Year, Synapse users!

The Synapse Team is proud to announce Wiki Histories. Synapse Wikis will now capture each saved update – and allow users the ability to restore previous versions of the Wiki History. This will allow a more fine-grained archive of a Synapse Project’s history and also allow for more collaborative editing of Wiki pages. See below the fold for screenshots of a new Wiki History after making edits to a Wiki page.

Happy researching!

About Brian Bot
I am a Principal Scientist working in Computational Oncology at Sage Bionetworks in Seattle, Washington and Community Manager for our technology platforms. Previously, I worked in the Department of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics at the Mayo Clinic for 7 years. This work included 7 years of dealing with cancer clinical trial data as part of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center (MCCC). I have extensive experience in working with clinical and genomic data and have a passion for exploring innovative ways to make science more open and transparent. My current work involves both doing innovative research in computational oncology as well as serving as a bridge between biomedical researchers and technology development. At its heart, this work is driven to re-envision how scientists can ensure reproducibility of their research results and communicate complex science to one another and to the public at large. I have been an invited speaker at a number of national and international events to share my experiences living at the intersection of biomedical research and technology.
