Crowdsourcing and electronic laboratory notebooks

Idea of crowdsourcing results is have a number of workers in different laboratories simultaneously carry out a range of procedures and combine results for a single research paper - allows better use of resources and work to be shared.

Based very loosely on the SETI and Folding at Home model but seeks to enlist labortries to do wet science co-operatively

Could also perhaps find analogs in field biology, eg co-operative biological vegetation surveys - get local amateur botanists to report abundances in standard format. Eg use diversity measures to age a sequence of hedgerows
