A recent paper in BMC Bioinformatics discusses user scripts for the life sciences. Researchers led by Indiana's David Wild look at scripts, such as OSCAR3, Postgenomics, and Connotea, that aggregate data from multiple web sources, enriching webpages with information from other sources. While they conclude user scripts are helpful, they caution that people should only install scripts from a trusted source.
