I would like to ask everyone to take part in a Zooniverse project. Zooniverse started as a citizen science project to classify galaxies, but has since branched out to include other projects. The project I would like to ask everyone to join is called Cell Slider and is a project with the intent to classify, and thereby try to find a cure for, cancer cells in the body. You can join at Zooniverse.org or just go straight to

http://www.cellslider.net

It costs nothing, just a little time, and can make a huge impact. Thanks.

Not exactly sure what this is all about. But I will check it out and do what I can.

Basically. You look at slides of cancer cells and answer some questions about them. Scientists then compile the data and it saves them the time it would take to do the classifications themselves.

Thanks a lot for sharing this link!
Just did a few slides - it is easy and you can do as many as your time allows.
What a great idea!

I'm doing the tutorial right now. It's really, really interesting.

I'll pass it a long to my friends also.

Thanks!

Thanks to everyone doing this! As an aside Zooniverse has tons of stuff similar to this for all you science buffs.
