Interactive platforms for biology education and research. Led by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, computer scientists, and human computer interaction researchers, this work envisions new systems to scaffold non-professional participation in biology. This project examines 1) how biology information can be presented intuitively to novice practitioners to enable hands-on work and learning; and 2) how professional biologists can productively collaborate with students and hobbyists to gather and analyze data using open source biology platforms.
