Paper by Dr. Hiroaki Kitano published in Nature Chemical Biology

A paper by Dr. Hiroaki Kitano, Principal Investigator of the Open Biology Unit, was published in Nature Chemical Biology. The paper discusses a new type of big science emerging that involves knowledge integration and collaboration among small sciences. Because open collaboration involves participants with diverse motivations and interests, the paper says, social dynamics have a critical role in making the project successful, and therefore, proper 'social engineering' will have a greater role in scientific project planning and management in the future.
