The SZI team consists of 14 international, early-career researchers. In other words, we often travel, we often move, we are rarely in one place all together. It is therefore only natural (even without a pandemic underway) that we make use of the excellent technological tools that we are given to work, share, and yes, meet online.
And we just did. We met somewhere on a server in between Australia, America, and Europe, some fancy hats included, to celebrate finishing ... the SZI database version 1.0 !!!
We will need some more weeks to polish everything that comes with the database (which is a lot!), but are, already now, excited to finally share it.
