Big data helps farmers adapt to climate variability

A new Michigan State University study shines a light on how big data and digital technologies can help farmers better adapt to threats—both present and future—from a changing climate.

Big data could yield big discoveries in archaeology, scholar says

Centuries of archaeological research on the Inca Empire has netted a veritable library of knowledge. But new digital and data-driven projects led by Brown University scholars are proving that there is much more to discover ...

Knowledge Engine is ready to accelerate genomic research

Five years ago, a team of computer scientists, biomedical researchers, and bioinformaticians set out to bring the power of collective knowledge to genomic research. Their new publication in PLOS Biology shares the culmination ...

Putting humanitarian work on the map

Australia's community services have reaped the rewards of data crunching projects that transform complex social information into visual tools.

Novel software tool extracts important chemical exposure data

Southwest Research Institute is introducing Floodlight, a novel software tool that efficiently discovers the vast numbers of chemical components—previously known and unknown—present in the food, air, drugs and products ...

Finally, machine learning interprets gene regulation clearly

In this age of "big data," artificial intelligence (AI) has become a valuable ally for scientists. Machine learning algorithms, for instance, are helping biologists make sense of the dizzying number of molecular signals that ...

SHAPEIT4: An algorithm for large-scale genomic analysis

Haplotypes are a set of genetic variations that, located side by side on the same chromosome, are transmitted in a single group to the next generation. Their examination makes it possible to understand the heritability of ...
