Data visualization for environmental studies – talk at JASM 2014

We were delighted to take part in a recent session at the Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Portland, OR (May 18-23, 2014), entitled “Environmental DNA applications for aquatic ecosystems“. @hollybik discussed the potential of Phinch visuals for environmental monitoring, bioassessment, and aquatic research.

Many thanks to session organizers Erik Pilgrim (US EPA), Eric Stein (Southern California Coastal Water Research Project), and Mehrdad Hajibabaei (University of Guelph) for the invitation to speak.

Our slides from the JASM 2014 talk are posted on Figshare (embedded below). Includes screenshots of recent updates to the user interface!

Phinch demo and poster at VIZBI 2014

After months of development, we finally unveiled the Phinch framework at this year’s Visualizing Biological Data (VIZBI) conference in Heidelberg, Germany (March 5-7, 2014).

@hollybik presented a poster about the project and gave a live software demo. You can view our visual abstract over on the VIZBI meeting site, or download a PDF of our poster from Figshare (embedded below).
