Our aim: a free and open textbook

To describe the economics of cells from different angles, we write a book for researchers and students that will condense the knowledge we have as a community and will serve as an open resource for learning and teaching. Our plan is to

  1. Write the first textbook / companion book on the topic as an open and free book (to be read online, downloaded or possibly be printed on demand for non-profit)

  2. Demonstrate that a textbook can be written and continuously updated by a collective of researchers and students, bypassing limitations imposed by publishers

  3. Establish this book as a standard textbook to which colleagues can easily contribute

  4. Use the book in our summer school courses for students and young researchers

This is a community project - please join us any time!

Book author meetings

Our monthly meetings take place on the 4th Tuesday of each month, 5:00 pm CET, on zoom.
