Data-driven research in the biological and biomedical sciences

About the research

The project brings together a network of interested scholars with backgrounds in the natural sciences, the humanities and the social sciences, in order to reach a better understanding of what data-driven science consists of, how it differs from other forms of knowledge-making and what implications this has for how we understand scientific research in the digital age.

The aim is to reach an understanding of how researchers are supposed to use data available online towards new discoveries, and how complex datasets can be integrated through cyberinfrastructures in ways that make them intelligible to and (re)usable by researchers.
