“Byte-size biology: What computers can teach us about animals”

Mackenzie M. Johnson (Ecology, Evolution and Behavior Graduate Program)

What is a supercomputer and how are biologists using them to better understand the natural world? Join us to find out more about the modern technologies being used to address traditional challenges in population biology. We’ll discuss the diversity we observe, the diversity we cannot, and the tools we can use to make sense of it.

Science Under the Stars has gone virtual! This semester all SUTS activities will be online, but they encourage you to participate outdoors under the stars in your backyard! (If wifi allows for it, of course.)

Please note that for this event, both the lecture and Q&A will be live and recorded. Here’s the schedule for this month’s event:
