Refreshments will be served. Abstract: What does it mean to make data available in a world where not everyone is a bioinformatician, but anyone can sequence a genome? As low-cost sequencing democratizes genome sequencing, it is also democratizing data analysis, with predictably uneven results. Can analytics approaches save us from everything from poorly documented analysis protocols to increasingly compressed and confusing visualizations? Cnythia and her senior graduate students will discuss the details of what they are doing with you at the end of the talk.
