Welcome to the COVID-19 Forum

The COVID-19 Forum  is a place to help scientists find partners and collaborators in advancing research about the novel coronavirus.

The discussions on this page are organized into FORUMS, each with a specific scientific goal in mind, e.g. “Repurposing existing drugs.”

Within each forum, contributors post TOPICS where they describe what ideas, resources, knowledge they have to share, and also what they need. Other participants can reply to topics in order to ask for clarification, offer complementary resources, or initiate a collaboration.

Please use TAGS to classify every topic, so that other participants can find posts that are relevant to them. Tags may only be applied to each main topic (not to subtopics or replies), so it may be necessary to update tags as the discussion continues. We strongly suggest you adhere to the following conventions for tagging: every topic should be tagged with at least one “offering_” and one “needing_.”

Modify if necessary, but try to use what others have used so that the tags remain useful. One idea would be to start with the base tags as they exist, and extend them with hyphens to be more specific i.e. “need_data-dnaseq-vcf”. With this strategy, the prefix should remain searchable. Also, keep in mind that the tags are only to help others find your posts. If they are too specific, they also won’t be useful.

Here are some tags to get you started:
offering_samples:
    offering_samples_patients
    offering_samples_celllines
    offering_samples_virus
offering_data
    offering_data_mRNA
    offering_data_proteomics
    offering_data_methylation
    offering_data_other
need_software
need_data
    need_mRNAdata
    need_data_proteomics
    need_data_methylation
    need_data_other
need_lab-reagents
need_lab-equipment
need_lab-processing
