Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News today featured COBA's Anne Carpenter and her group at the Broad Institute for their work launching a Cell Imaging Consortium. The consortium includes 12 pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and received funding through the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) Bits to Bytes capital program.
In the feature, Carpenter describes the motivation behind the consortium and the image-set it will produce, how the partners were chosen, and how the project will measure success.
Today, Cell Press journal Patterns published a feature by COBA's own Dr. Anne Carpenter in their "People of Data" series discussing her transition from being a biologist to leading an entirely computational group. In the piece, Carpenter offers great insight for those who may be considering a similar career shift, or for those who just enjoy reading about bridging domain and data.
Summary from Patterns: "Why would a researcher move outside their comfort zone into a different field, from...
