As a physics student at Princeton University, Assistant Professor Carl Boettiger had no intention of working with computers: he says he was essentially “pulled in by accident.” During his time as an undergraduate, Boettiger gradually broadened his interests from physics, which he believed to be the type of science done solely on a chalkboard, to biophysics and ecology.

Data scientists at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) and the University of Washington’s eScience Institute teamed up with UCSF researchers to deliver a workshop on data-driven analysis and machine learning for neuroscience imaging data. The workshop was held in January 2017, and had 30-40 participants comprised of faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and data science fellows from UCSF, UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley Lab, and the University of Washington.

IPython notebook available to ease data transfer between Savio and Box

For researchers running computation on the Savio high-performance compute cluster, data transfer can be a challenge. A new IPython notebook simplifies data transfer from the free Box collaboration platform to a Savio user’s scratch folder, and provides a template for users to develop their own algorithms that analyze data stored in Box.
