Lecture

Stephen Smith, U-M assistant professor in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, talks about how Big Data can be used to address questions in evolutionary biology and how Open culture in data sharing and software sharing contribute to these endeavors.

Emerging technologies for collecting molecular data have given researchers unprecedented access to genomic information. These new data have enormous potential for illuminating questions in biology, but the magnitude and complexity of this data continues to present challenges. 

The library's Emergent Research Series events are aimed at better understanding the various types of research undertaken across campus, particularly as they relate to library services and support, opportunities for collaboration, data management and preservation, and beyond.
