Which comes first, the chicken or the egg?

World-wide experiments have been conducted to understand the distinct relationships among various genes. However, it remains a challenge to identify the genomic causes and effects directly from the data, especially within a network. It’s the classic chicken and egg question: Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? In other words, how do you know […]

Reproducibility Does Not Equal Truth

The CMCI Reproducibility in Sciences working group, or SciRep for short, has been meeting since the fall of 2015. Today, their most recent publication, “Scientific discovery in a model-centric framework: Reproducibility, innovation, and epistemic diversity,” was published in PLOS ONE. Congratulations! The American Council on Science and Health also picked up the story with their […]

University of Idaho Research Hits Science Magazine

The cover of Science Magazine currently features an important discovery made by an international research team: deep-sea fish can see more than just one color. When a Switzerland- and Australia-based research team recently needed to validate their findings regarding what colors of light a deep-sea fish species could see at up to 1500 meters below […]
