A community of modelers and computational researchers involved in plant pathology, plant disease epidemiology, pathogen population biology, microbial ecology and genomics, that supports the several forms of Open Science practices in Plant Pathology. We support efforts from individuals or groups to develop and deliver next-generation databases and tools for plant pathology-related subjects and applications using open source software, data and repositories.

Our second OPP interview features Professor Sophien Kamoun, a senior scientist and professor of biology with the Sainsbury Laboratory, Norwich, UK. Dr. Kamoun is known for his prolific Tweeting but more importantly for his work with oomycetes (#notafungus), effectors and evolution. Prof. Kamoun is well recognized for his efforts to champion data sharing and other open science practices. It is a great pleasure to have Prof. Kamoun answering six questions about open science.
Our first OPP Interview features Dr. Niklaus J. Grünwald, a plant pathologist with USDA ARS, Corvallis, OR, USA. Nik has made significant scientific contributions to the understanding of the population biology and evolution of Phytophthora infestans worldwide. His lab has developed R packages which have contributed considerably to advance and facilitate the analysis of genetic and genome sequence data with applications in taxonomy and evolution, beyond the field of plant pathology.
