Don wizard robe. Open bag of magic tricks. Scatter purple stardust and utter A-B-R-A-C-A-D-A-B-R-A followed by “replicate study.”

Replication is not quite as easy as uttering a magical incantation, but some tools and tips can work miracles. Within our toolbox, we have magical workflow solutions like Kepler and Taverna, workflow repositories like myExperiment, trusted data repositories and wizard-supported metadata entry tools. Gazing into our crystal ball, we see provenance tracking in R and MATLAB. Come look inside our bag of tricks, grab a handful of purple stardust, and IGNITE the path that leads to transparency and replication in ecology.
