New service called BioTorrent is a powerful tracker for transferring scientific information at the high speeds. Experts say it is a convenient and effective way to make important data accessible for everyone in case of specific time-sensitive events like H1N1 pandemic
The group of scientists from the University of California Davis has created a BitTorrent website for educational purposes. They position BioTorrent like “file sharing site for scientific information”. It provides researches with ability to share big amounts of data reliably and fast.
“The necessity to create such service appeared naturally, as the volumes of scientific information continuously grow together with demand for open access. The techniques offered today do not correspond to the requirements of science development due to low performance”.
“BioTorrent based on BitTorrent P2P service is open data sharing resource that has huge capabilities for fast and reliable data sharing and able to unite all institutions together in the informational space”.
BitTorrent offers error checking technologies that make data exchange more safe and reliable. The researchers found a lot of shortcomings in sharing information using FTP and HTTP protocols, like unreasonable use of resources, low speeds, limited downloads, etc. It doesn’t provide free unlimited access and fault tolerance. BitTorrent doesn’t have such shortages, providing access to unlimited number of users at the same time.
BioTorrent will be helpful for both world scientific communities and small private research groups. It can be used like a resource for publishing research results, connecting with various colleagues from all over the world. It is far much simpler than passing through official registration process. Sometimes the information went to public when it was out-of-date due to the long time spent for gathering all signatures. This is already in the past, and BioTorrent will provide with worthy alternative of fast data publishing and distribution.
The founders hope that scientists will evaluate the advantages of BioTorrent sharing service as a modern way of data exchange and will use it for their own purposes. The scientific freedom can fasten the process of creating innovations, making researches, founding various medicines. Such a non-entertainment application of BitTorrent is worth attention.
