First, there is now a Volvox specific Slack channel – send an email to Brad for an invitation link.

Second, we are starting monthly Volvox and volvocine algae specific virtual lab meetings. Email Brad for details on how to participate. Both are open to all researchers at all levels.

Data Science for Biologists

The “-omics” revolution has revolutionized biology, yet our ability to analyze the deluge of data generated by these approaches. In 2019, I will be teaching a new Data Science course aimed at biologists that are dealing with these enormous data sets. We will be focusing on applying machine learning techniques to biological data sets. We will be focusing on skills for effective software development, coding scientifically, and learning how to leverage machine learning tools such as TensorFlow to analyze biological datasets.
