Madeleine Price Ball is a perfect fit for George Church's Personal Genome Project. Passionate about data sharing and making data freely available, she has edited many a Wikipedia entry, including the "Genetics" page and has even created a few articles of her own, such as the "Stop codon" entry.
"For the scientific method to succeed, it's important to have data that is shared publicly," she says. "I'm troubled by the phenomenon of data being locked up."
