Throwing a Lifeline to Scientists Drowning in Data

July 31, 2013

New computational techniques developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) may help save scientists from drowning in their own data. Computational scientists at the Lab have figured out how to streamline the analysis of enormous scientific datasets. The analysis uses the same techniques that make complex subway systems understandable at a glance. Read More »
