This month, the podcast covers the following topics:
- A new paper by Will Redfern and colleagues published in PLOS ONE describing Rodent Big Brother, a home cage analysis system allowing 24/7 monitoring of rodent behaviours in a group-housed environment, which was developed through the NC3Rs CRACK IT open innovation platform.
- The Alliance of Genome Resources: a new initiative bringing together a number of model organism databases in order to provide an integrated view of their data.
- Two papers by Nathalie Percie du Sert and colleagues published in Nature Methods and PLOS Biology that describe the Experimental Design Assistant (EDA), a free web tool from the NC3Rs that aims to address issues of reproducibility in animal research by guiding researchers through the design of their experiments.
