    Dear Fiona, I’ve read your article in Applied & Translational Genomics on data sharing. It was a pleasure to be one of the interviewees. I’d like to read your interview on Open Steps as mentioned on the website as well. But the link does not work. Could you send me the article or the right link? Thank you!

    Kind regards,
    Kirsten Renkema (postdoc, Dept. of Genetics, UMC Utrecht, The Netherlands)

      Dear Kirsten,

      It seems that the Open Steps website shut down.
      We have contacted them and asked to send us a copy
      of that interview. When/if we hear from them we will
      let you know.

      Thanks for your interest in DNAdigest!
