AWS Introduces Amazon HealthLake For Analysis & Transformation Of Healthcare Data In Cloud

The latest offering on healthcare from Amazon was introduced in the form of Amazon HealthLake, announced at the AWS re:Invent 2020 event.

Understanding Bioinformatics As A Beginner In Data Science

Though the skillset for Data Science is the same, the implementation varies from problem to problem. That is where domain knowledge comes into play. It has been established that any sector that produces data can be optimized by data science skills to make better business decisions, overcoming challenges and identifying opportunities. Molecular biology is one…

Biologists and Data Scientists: The Cultural Divide

The fields of biology and data science have a lot in common. Data scientists and biologists both analyze datasets to try to make sense of the world. Today, data science is becoming increasingly important for biology, as biologists increasingly use machine learning and AI for drug discovery, medical diagnosis, and automating repetitive tasks. Insights from Alexander Titus. Biologists and Data Scientists: The Cultural Divide

Are Computational Biologists Losing Their Jobs?

Are Computational Biologists Losing Their Jobs? Researchers have been focused on developing artificial intelligence (AI)-driven analysis platforms for biomedical data. DrBioRight sets a good initial attempt.

Myths And Realities In The Quest For Artificial Intelligence

The term Artificial Intelligence (AI) was created and used for the first time in the mid-1940s. However, it was not until 1956 that it was formally used for the first time in a small gathering attended by some psychologists, physiologists and computer scientists. Since its inception, AI has had some successes in enabling computers to…

Engineered Bacteria Grown in Seawater Produce Silk Proteins

The first time that I saw synthetic spider silk, it was behind glass in the Victoria & Albert Museum. After wrapping up my experiments for the day, I took a brief walk across Exhibition Road.

Just How Big Was the Largest Dinosaur? Bigger Than You Think.

Reaching nearly half a football field in length and starting from an egg smaller than a human baby, this dinosaur was king of herbivores.The largest dinosaur that ever lived has been revised many times. Some paleontologists thought it was the Brontosaurus, way back in the day.

Using Cancer To Cure Spinal Cord Injury

As a graduate student, I chose a mentor who was very passionate about curing spinal cord injury. He had been in a terrible car accident when he was a kid in which he was thrown from the car, miraculously unharmed.

Enabling Foundational Tools for Scientific Discovery

We believe in a future where biomedical scientists have access to the most advanced computational tools to conduct research and can build upon, extend, and adapt these tools to meet their needs.

Pangolins Are Not to Blame for The Pandemic

The infectious disease of COVID-19 was first identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019. As we all know, it has since spread globally and is thus considered a pandemic. COVID-19 is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

How the father’s height influences the son’s height

How the father’s height influences the son’s height. Let’s say the average height of men is 67.7 inches (172cm). If a man is 72 inches (183cm) tall, how tall will his full-grown son be?

The advice that started My Career in Data Science

How I started in biochemistry and landed at Machine Learning. A 2nd year Bachelor’s of Science student, I was still enacting a plan that I had formulated in late high school.

GANs for Driving Biological Research

GANs for Driving Biological Research. The purpose of this article is to detail the potential applications of GANs to scientific research, so I will assume a preliminary understanding of GANs.

Creating the ecology classic ‘Kite diagram’ in Python

Using Python’s matplotlib library. Creating the ecology classic ‘Kite diagram’ in Python. Kite diagrams are classically used in both ecology and biology studies and also form part of the school syllabus on A-Level Biology courses in the UK. Despite this, there are few options for creating these diagrams in standard software visualisation packages, and most seem to still be hand drawn. This short post will explain how to automate this process with Python 3 and the matplotlib library.

Untangling Biology with Microscopes and Algorithms

Our new research paper uses data science to analyze how organs form in the embryo. A quick summary for non-experts.
