Brooding brittle star babies in 3-D

An article in GigaScience presents 3-D images of the inside of live-bearing brittle stars, relatives of starfish, and these 100 GB of data are freely available. The high-resolution images created by microCT, allow the analysis of developing brittle star young, but also — besides being cool to look at — are perfect for sharing with other researchers. Large-data sharing, though difficult, is an essential part of making research both reproducible and reusable in the broadest sense. —> Read More
