Open Access Evolution

Dr. Eisen at UC Davis has started a new blog theme on his “Tree of Life” blog called “Open Evolution” (open access publications, open source programs, etc) and has started with open access journals. He has listed a few open access journals (and there’s a good discussion in the comments about the difference between ‘open access’ and ‘free online access’ journals) and is asking if anyone knows of any others. He hasn’t asked for it yet, but I’ve got some ideas for open source/access phylogeny analysis programs and/or databases. I’ll post a few of those in the coming week or so, but for now here is a link to a list of such programs (some on this list I’m not sure are open source, I’ll cull these later too).
