This post is written by UT Austin grad student Rayna Harris and postdoc Tessa Solomon-Lane Innovative science is increasingly interdisciplinary. With our Pop-Up Institute in May 2017, we aim to expand beyond the traditional scope of interdisciplinary collaboration to make meaningful … Continue reading
Making lemonade out of lemons: the genetics of yeast cell clumping in continuous culture experiments
This post is written by UW postdoc Elyse Hope. There is a lot of genetic complexity that can contribute to what an organism looks like. Far from a single gene controlling a single trait (e.g. a gene for height or … Continue reading
This post is written by MSU faculty Mark Reimers and Arend Hintze Let us marvel about the complexity of life for a moment. We have DNA transcribed into mRNA, just to get that translated into proteins, which metabolize, catabolize, or process … Continue reading
This Evolution 101 post is by MSU grad student Douglas Kirkpatrick In baseball, ice hockey, and basketball, when a team wins all of the games in a playoff series, they are said to have swept the other team out of the … Continue reading
This Evolution 101 post is by MSU grad student Tyler Derr I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that our DNA is the “blueprint” of who we are. Well, our genes are the sequences in our DNA that actually encode instructions for … Continue reading
This post is by UT Austin graduate student Rayna Harris The Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at The University of Texas at Austin is proud to host the 3rd Annual Big Data in Biology Summer School May 23–26, 2016. The 2016 … Continue reading
This week’s BEACON Researchers at Work blog post is by MSU faculty member Ashley Shade. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our Explorations in Data Analysis for Metagenomic Advances in Microbial Ecology (EDAMAME) workshop last year, which was partially supported … Continue reading
This week’s BEACON Researchers at Work blog post is by University of Texas at Austin Research Scientist Dhivya Arasappan. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field in which computer algorithms and statistical methods are applied to answer biological questions. It is a … Continue reading
