What do hip-hop and hurricane evacuations have to do with network science? High school students learned the answers to that and more in an inaugural series of network science lectures, given by University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute researchers Chris Kuhlman, Dustin Machi and S.S. Ravi at the annual Achievable Dream Summer Program.
The University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute was recently awarded a five-year $4 million collaborative grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) to build a self-sustaining cyberinfrastructure (CINES – pronounced “science”) to serve as an open-source, web-based repository for developing, trading, analyzing, and sharing network science resources.
