Join us for another edition of our Data Sciences and Society Reading Group meeting. This time, we are very fortunate to be joined by Dr. Jonathan Pevsner from the Kennedy Krieger Institute, who teaches widely on bioinformatics and genomics. Dr. Pevsner will facilitate a discussion on what big data means in the context of biology, what bioethical issues are specific to big data, and what the future of genomics holds in an age of data.
