I’m ecstatic to announce that I’ve just been awarded my first research grant as PI – a $250k, 1-year grant from the Alfred P. Sloan foundation to develop a software prototype: “A Research-Driven Data Visualization Framework for High-Throughput Environmental Sequence Data”
This project will be carried out in collaboration with Pitch Interactive, a data visualization studio based in Berkeley, CA. We’ll be using forward-thinking, scalable technologies such as WebGL and HTML5 to develop a browser-based tool. And in addition, we’ll produce some new and novel ways to visualize -omic datasets.
You can find out more about this project by reading the funded grant proposal on Figshare, or browsing the slides I posted from my recent #iEvoBio keynote talk. Stay tuned for more updates as the project gets up and running.
