GigaScience

GigaScience aims to revolutionize data dissemination, organization, understanding, and use.

To achieve our goals, the journal has a novel publication format: one that links standard manuscript publication with an extensive database that hosts all associated data and provides data analysis tools and cloud-computing resources.
