COS Publishes First Wave of Studies on What Extent Published Results on Cancer Biology are Reproducible

The Center for Open Science has published initial results of The Reproducibility Project on eLife, an open-access journal, that focuses on cancer biology studies.  The results from COS and collaborator Science Exchange are garnering national press attention from several science news outlets. On February 16, the Center for Open Science will host the CvilleBioHub and members for “Road trip to COS – Scientific data, can you believe it?” where COS researchers will discuss their findings and what it means for published scientific data.
