Hello, welcome back to the molpigs newsletter, and Happy New Year!

We’re looking forward to recording more podcasts for you very soon, the previous of which can be found here! As always, feel free to also hang out at the molpigs Forum.

Following on from Dominic’s announcements last year, Namita, William and Dominic’s grassroots textbook initiative, The Art of Molecular Programming, is gaining momentum and they’re looking for authors and editors. Whether it’s just a couple paragraphs or something longer, they’re keen to have your help so make sure to fill in their survey!

1. Join the effort!: The Art of Molecular Programming, a grassroots textbook initiative

To hear Dominic talk about the idea behind this initiative, check out his announcement and our discussion at the end of the last podcast!

We are launching a grassroots initiative to create a textbook called “The Art of Molecular Programming.” We need YOUR help!

The principles of molecular programming are currently scattered across thousands of papers, which presents a barrier for new researchers entering the field. The Art of Molecular Programming will collect these principles in one location, provide tutorial lessons to guide students’ learning, and present a collective vision on where the field is heading. We are seeking participation from anyone who considers themselves a molecular programmer (i.e. You), regardless of your career stage. The final textbook will be published open access and attributed to all the authors and editors. Please fill out this survey to join the effort!

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to contact us:


2. Interested in helping out, sharing something interesting, or have an idea for something we could do?

If so, please get in touch with us! Shoot us an email at contributions AT <this domain>, there are loads of ways you can get involved, and many we haven’t even thought of, but here’s a few ideas of what you could do:

We’re looking forward to getting to hear from you, and getting to know you better!
