Teaching computational reproducibility for neuroimaging

Our trust in science is based on the assumed replicability of research results; however, scientific research is in the midst of a replication or reproducibility crisis following the realization that many individual findings are, in fact, not replicable. The field of neuroimaging is no exception. What does ‘reproducibility’ mean? Replication is independently repeating the methodology […]

Designing precision tools to mine DNA data

Ludmer Centre Scientific Director Celia Greenwood secured over $600K in funding for new research, Precision Medicine in Cellular Epigenomic, from the recent Genome Canada competitions.  To understand brain development, researchers need to unlock the secrets of our DNA. Currently, we can collect data on multiple aspects of DNA, but to extract meaning from the ever-expanding data trove requires the right […]
