"Squandered value? How to overcome the challenges of joining up government data for statistics and research", Ed Humpherson & Catherine Bromley (UK Statistics Authority)

To speak to people involved in linking Government datasets is to enter a world that at times seems so ludicrous as to be Kafkaesque. Stories abound of Departments putting up arcane barriers to sharing their data with other parts of Government; and of researchers waiting so long to get access to data that their funding runs out before they can start work.

"Fragile cultures and unruly matters: the role of microbial lives in collaborative knowledge practices in synthetic biology", Dr Sally Atkinson & Prof Susan Molyneux-Hodgson (University of Exeter)

Egenis seminar series. In this paper we describe the pluralistic and mutable roles attributed to and enacted by microbes in the process of microbial engineering for bioproduction. Examining the tension between live cultures as bio-objects and bio-actants, we discuss how such roles reveal and shape scientific practice and emerging knowledge in an industry-academic synthetic biology collaboration..

"The Art of Moving in Biology", Janina Wellmann (Leuphana University of Lüneburg)

Egenis seminar series. Since ancient times, self-propelled movement has been considered the distinguishing characteristic of the living, setting it apart from mere matter. Motion has always been observed, described and visualized: cells “dancing”, “swimming”, or “swarming”, for example, or “twitching”, “floating”, and “curling” have vividly brought to life the hidden world inside our bodies. But what is biological motion? While motion has always been central to studying the living world it appears to have been taken for granted in biological analysis. Full details

"Receiving an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis for a child: a longitudinal interview study on parents’ experiences" Delphine Jacobs (KU Leuven, Belgium)

In a longitudinal empirical study, I investigate how the autism concept is understood and experienced by parents. Parents who ask for an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) diagnostic assessment for their child are interviewed at three different moments (Saldaña, 2003): before the ASD diagnostic assessment, right after the feedback session, and 12 months later.
