For this episode, Dr. Sabah Ul-Hasan (Scripps Research) takes us through their work in bioinformatics, venom microbiology and data science and education.

How does Sabah see bioinformatics research influencing and benefiting our daily life and how the natural or human world operates around us? What are examples of evolutionary, ecological and biological questions we can answer through a big data approach and analysis? What was their first experience in computational biology, and how did they get started looking at the Californian cone snail morphologically and the microbes in the venom glands of these gastropods?

We also talk about the coronavirus pandemic and how crucial it is that Scripps and other research institutions work on improving data literacy. This is to fight misinformation and to give public audiences the tools they need to understand what data mean and do not indicate, which, in these times, is so important.
