I am a founding member and Associate Director of The Bioinformatics Organization, Inc. Bioinformatics.Org was founded to facilitate world-wide communications and collaborations between practicing and neophyte bioinformatic scientists and technicians. The Organization provides these individuals, as well as the public at large, free and open access to materials and methods for and from scientific research, software development, and education. We advocate and promote freedom and openness in the field as well as provide a forum for activities which facilitate the development of such resources.

Bioinformatics.Org was established in 1998 by J.W. Bizzaro as a place to host collaborations in bioinformatics. I joined as a cofounder in early 1999 . In 2000, the Organization had more than 100 members and over one dozen projects. The Organization became incorporated in 2003 and currently has more than 26,000 members and over 400 projects.

Bioinformatics.Org is one of the largest affiliations in the field of bioinformatics, and the number of resources that we offer is on-par with that offered by NCBI and EBI. However, we distinguish ourselves with our open membership and project hosting: anyone, anywhere can participate. Bioinformatics.Org is also well-known for its emphasis on open access to biological information as well as on Free and Open Source software.
