Open Ash Dieback Project (Dr. Kentaro Yoshida of The Sainsbury Lab)

The Open Ash Dieback project, an exciting (and vital) effort to gain insight into ash dieback, a chronic fungal disease of ash trees. Ash dieback is caused by a fungus, Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus, and is characterised by leaf loss and crown dieback in infected trees. Ash dieback has already caused significant damage to tree populations in northern Europe and was recently discovered in the UK. The Open Ash Dieback project embraces the new paradigms of open science and crowdsourcing by making all its data public and asking scientists to analyse genetic data from ash and the fungus.
