Domain to Data: Carpenter shares her journey from biologist towards computer science


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 a domain into data science? What is the best way to bridge domain and data? What is challenging about moving from domain toward data? What is amazing about bridging domain and data?"
