The recent study addressing funding concerns for knowledgebases, conducted by SIB and supported by ELIXIR, is the focus of an F1000 Research blog. First author SIB's Chiara Gabella and reviewer Helen Berman, Director Emerita and Associate Director of the RCSB Protein Data Bank (Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey) discuss funding models, open access data and the future of biocuration. An important read for anyone interested in the preservation of biological knowledge.
