Our Vision and Mission

Open Plant Pathology (OPP) fosters a diverse community culture that values openness, transparency and reproducibility of scientific research data and methods

We do this by:

  1. Creating social infrastructure through a welcoming, engaged and diverse community in a Slack chatting workspace and on Twitter.
  2. How to join and what to do?

  3. Creating a technical infrastructure and supporting members to help direct and engage the community and create community-contributed open source software tools for self or collaborative research and teaching environments
  4. Building capacity of computational plant pathologists and fostering a sense of pride in their work.

  5. Promoting advocacy for a culture of data sharing, reusable software and instructional materials in the field of plant pathology.


OpenPlantPathology is a scientific community founded in 2018 by Emerson Del Ponte and Adam Sparks to facilitate communication among computational plant pathologists and promote open science and reproducible research practices in plant pathology.
