Pink Army Cooperative Uses Open Source Principles to Treat Breast Cancer

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the greatest things about the open 
| source philosophy is that its principles can 
| be applied to projects that help mankind. 
| Content management systems, media apps, and 
| gaming software all have their place in the 
| FOSS ecosystem, but when projects like the 
| Pink Army Cooperative come along, it reminds 
| people of just how powerful the open source 
| doctrine really is.
| Founded in March of this year, Canadian-
| based Pink Army Cooperative is using open 
| source synthetic biology to create better 
| drugs to fight breast cancer. The 
| organization is comprised of members who pay 
| $21 CDN to join the cooperative and, in 
| turn, receive a small economic stake in the 
| co-op.
