Nelson is one of three from among over 100 applicants invited to join the prestigious Boyce Thompson Institute, which touted his bioinformatics expertise, a skill he’s gained through his work with CyVerse.
The CyVerse Data Store allocates users 100GB of free data storage space, enough to fill roughly 50,000 Stephen King-sized novels. With that much space, it’s easy to lose track of individual files, an old project, or that one script you know you put somewhere – and when you don't know where your data are, it's hard to manage them.
In early June, CyVerse kicked off its novel curriculum for Foundational Open Science Skills, or FOSS, a week-long summer-camp style training designed to introduce principal investigators – both new and established – to principles, technologies, and best practices for open science.
The National Science Foundation's 2026 Idea Machine is a competition aimed at helping inform the U.S. agenda for science and engineering. Contestants submit entries regarding the most pressing research questions of the coming decade. Entries are available for comment until June 26.
