Introducing Riffyn Nexus
Timothy Gardner

Our cloud-based Process Data System, formerly called Riffyn SDE, is now Riffyn Nexus. Since launch in 2016, it has since grown to fulfill our grand vision to be a hub of people, process, and data working together to build the future of science. As it grew, our original name seemed to fall short of the power and potential of this vision. Welcome to the future. Welcome to Riffyn Nexus.

GitHub for Science
Timothy Gardner

Designable process flows can serve as the source code for experiments and a foundation for a GitHub for science. In this post, we illustrate what we mean by “GitHub for Science” and how this could transform the way we advance scientific idea to manufactured products.

Source Code for Science
Timothy Gardner
Like people, ideas need to romance each other: they meet, mix and produce offspring. But sadly, the breeding of scientific ideas is being shortchanged. We need a new kind of dating app: a dating app for nerdy ideas. We need source code for science.
Novozymes Delivers Four Breakthrough Biofuels Products to Market in Half the Normal Development Time with Transformative Digital Infrastructure
Timothy Gardner
In this blog, we share a recently published case study discussing how Novozymes applied Riffyn as an integral part of their innovative digital backbone to deliver four break-through biofuels products to market in half the normal development time.
What Should My Business Do About Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

Here is a ten-step approach to reaching an informed, balanced and rational decision.

Where's the fanFAIR?
Timothy Gardner
Choosing to create a FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) laboratory environment seems obvious. Who wouldn’t want to be able to find and reuse their data? But it’s not as easy as it sounds. The transformation requires scientific technical backbone and knowhow.
What Does "Reproducible Science" Really Mean?
Timothy Gardner
The voluminous discussion and conflicting language on scientific reproducibility over the past decade has obscured its meaning. But in fact, there is a very clear scientific meaning for reproducibility, one that has been thoroughly developed and routinely practiced around the world every day.
Digital Publishing Isn't Enough: the Case for "Blueprints" in Scientific Communication
Timothy Gardner
If modern software engineering worked like science, programmers would not share open source code, they would take notes on their work and then publish long-form articles about their software. Months or years later, their colleagues would attempt to reproduce the software based on the article.
