Hi all,

Heidi Williams's long-awaited paper came out in March /Journal of
Political Economy/.  She did a careful study of how data were used from
Celera sequence (covered by contractual restrictions on use) compared to
HGP sequence (rapidly and freely available).  By several metrics HGP
data were more widely and rapidly used.  Metrics included how many
diagnostics were developed, and citations in publications.  She also
tested for selection bias, and found nothing to support the idea that
HGP got to the "juicy bits" first and Celera got only the dregs (which
could account for the findings).  Her work, moreover, corroborates an
intuition that freely available data are going to get used more than
ones that require negotiations, face use restrictions, etc.  And this
work on /data/ supports other empirical work on use of DuPont's
oncomouse with and without use restrictions (Stern's work).

In my view, this is first-rate empirical work that deserves a very broad

the guts of the paper have long been (and remain) available freely from the
NBER working paper website; and as of this morning, the MIT archive now
posts the published version, so far as I can tell.
