Great idea, have to say!

Not sure, but not a single other MMO did anything like it. While there are plenty ways to participate in similar projects without playing EVE, have to say that it's a great way to get people involved into such projects. Will see how it plays out, but would be great to integrate these tasks to missions or archeology systems.

As a suggestion - add some items to the faction store that will require the science rating and won't be accessible otherwise. Some unique ships skins/archeology equipment/implants would be really nice.

Looks like Sisi's back up. :D

Absolutly great idea!!

Same, Datterich. It looks like the interface is up, but...

Rewards should be fairly substantial since you are now getting paid on both ends of the spectrum, no?

(Player subscription and research grant/equivalent) Better pay-out = more participants.

So over time will there be multiple research projects associated with this or will always be completely focused on one research goal at a time (if the research goal ever changes at all, of course)?



This project is set for the Human Protein Atlas for now, but hopefully you can see the other possibilities in the future for other types of research.
They would still have to fit thematically within the EVE experience however.

Takes [ages|forever] to load anything. Me being a Telekom customer (known bandwidth issues for cloudfront/amazon hosted content) may be the reason.

The Lack of traversing the tutorial backwards is weird - but ... tutorials? why no opportunities for this?

Great idea!

I know the concept of using gamer's energy for something like this has been around, but this is the first real implementation i know of.

Kudos!

P.S. Some lore-item rewards would be great to motivate those who dont' crave ISK or Sister's LP (which are the same ISK)

As a biologist i fully approve of this initiative. And i will make sure i point at you many times if you do something wrong with it! Just as soon as i have time left from my RL biological studies.

Awesome stuff!

Been playing with it a bit, and my recommendations so far:

* A 'skip sample' button for when you really have no idea, or don't want to commit to it;
* The ability to resize the window, as on larger screens the samples can be a bit small;
* Perhaps saving the 'results' page with Prof. Lundberg's portrait until the end of a session, or a screen that can be checked mid-session; I'm not likely to care about the payout until I'm going on an op or bored. ;)

The difficulty I'm having with this analysis so far is determining when something is significant. For instance, one of the early post-tutorial examples is one with cytoskeleton (actin filaments). I correctly identified those (sort of obvious), but also saw green speckling in the nucleus and suspected that these, while faint, were a case of many small nuclear bodies. Correct in the first case, incorrect in the second.

Is there some allowance for, say, 'common misidentifications,' as in this case? Or do I just need to work on my pattern recognition?
