A cool experiment from the Mozilla Science Lab: Code Review for Scientists. I look forward to the results.

As I mentioned, disease-specific papers I helped with from the GBD 2010 work are starting to appear, and the GBD-Compare tool tells a story about each one. This one is about heart disease, as described in Forouzanfar et al. Assessing the global burden of ischemic heart disease, part 2: analytic methods and estimates of the global epidemiology of ischemic heart disease in 2010.
A small pile of disease-specific papers I helped with from the GBD 2010 have started to make their way into the world. Each should have a set of links to an appropriately selected spot in the GBD-Compare tool:
- Charlson et al. The epidemiological modelling of dysthymia: Application for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23806588
- Marcenes et al. Global burden of oral conditions in 1990-2010: a systematic analysis. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23720570
- Forouzanfar et al. Assessing the global burden of ischemic heart disease, part 2: analytic methods and estimates of the global epidemiology of ischemic heart disease in 2010. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23505617
It would be great if the systematic review data from these studies was released as well! At least two groups have actually used the HCV replication dataset in their own research now.

Seeing data transition can be amazing, can be distracting. Making it work can be confusing. Here are some hints: http://www.jeromecukier.net/blog/2012/07/16/animations-and-transitions/
