This is a call to everyone out there who works in open bioinformatics - please share interesting stuff! This could be a new project launch, an interesting update or release, a link to useful resources (e.g. some nice biology related icons or an open source tool that could be useful, etc. If you aren't sure about something, feel free to drop me a line personally to discuss it, e.g. via twitter or email (yochannah@gmail.com).

Promoting yourself or your workplace is totally ok here - this is literally what the newsletter is for, within reason! You can see our last newsletter content here: https://github.com/OBF/newsletter/blob/master/newsletters/2018-07.md

I'll use HackMD to author this one.

Interesting link: creative commons (free to re-use!) icons for biology: https://innovativegenomics.org/resources/educational-materials/glossary/

Interesting link: https://github.com/opendigitalsafety/Digital-Safety-for-Open-Researchers this is a really interesting project, acknowledging the fact that working openly as an academic can sometimes bring grief and digital harassment (I've briefly experienced this, once, when I tweeted from a talk about research I didn't know was controversial), and trying to create resources to help people manage and avoid this.

It might be nice to have a short blurb on each of the OBF GSoC projects, too. https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/organizations/5340733272227840/

I know there was a talk about this at BOSC 2017, but it might be interesting to mention JOSS again briefly and encourage people to sign up as reviewers.

Hey @yochannah; I'm a dev for a small project: bioSyntax which provides syntax highlighting for computational biology. It pretty-fies your FASTA / BAM / PDB ... files in vim, sublime, less, gedit and vscode. We (a group of students) started this project as part of the hackseq17 hackathon and published a paper about it.

@bebatut - it might be nice to include some notes about CoFest in the newsletter - e.g. "cofest occurs every N months on x day, and (insert some notes about welcome project types here)" - could you help suggest some wording maybe?

Sure. I can do that. In which section? "Community updates"?
