Scaling open source, a model that works

We have created a sustainable model for funding our mission. The authoring tools, packages, protocols, and file formats we develop will always be open source and available to all. As these open source tools become widely adopted, this creates an opportunity to sell complementary products that help in their adoption at scale, the proceeds of which fund further open source development.


We're dedicated to open source

Open source software is resilient.

It’s developed collaboratively by the global community. With open source, you’re not chained to the fortunes of a single company, and you own not just your work, but all the code needed to run it.

Open source software is participatory.

You’re not limited by the vision of one company and the methods they support; you’re free to pick and choose from a vast palette of options or even develop your own.

Open source software is free.

It’s accessible to everyone, regardless of economic means. This is particularly important for science where the ability to reproduce and critique the work of others is essential for progress.

Always Open

We write open source software, and we always will
