Dalhousie welcomes four new Canada Research Chairs studying topics such as pain, Indigenous health, data visualization, and addictions and mental health. Two existing chairs (in advanced batteries and psychiatry) have also been renewed.
The award was granted to Axel J. Soto, Vlado Keselj, and Evangelos Milios (Dalhousie University, Canada) and Ryan Kiros (University of Toronto, Canada) for their article "Exploratory Visual Analysis and Interactive Pattern Extraction From Semi-Structured Data"
The process of decoding DNA sequences produces an avalanche of data - and finding the meaning and knowledge hidden in that data is a challenge being tackled today by computer scientists. They’re the researchers who work with algorithms and focus on interpreting genetic data instead of the messy business of samples and test tubes.
