Thursday, January 13, 2022

Lila Kari and Tamer OzsuTwo researchers in the Cheriton School of Computer Science are part of a research team that was recently awarded $24 million CAD by Canada’s New Frontiers in Research Fund as part of the BIOSCAN project, which aims to catalogue biodiversity.

Professors Lila Kari and M. Tamer Özsu are bringing their expertise in biodiversity informatics and data science to the research team.

BIOSCAN  is a multinational, multidisciplinary project to complete the inventory of species, reveal their interactions, and assess their response to ecosystem change. Part of the research involves cataloguing massive quantities of DNA sequences, which is where data science and informatics expertise fits in the project.
