Why Your Field Needs a Hack Week: Bringing Data Science Into Astronomy

Kira: Processing Astronomy Imagery Using Big Data Technology

Moorea Biocode Project, Gump Station

The Moorea Biocode Project built the first comprehensive inventory of all non-microbial life in a complex tropical ecosystem.  Supported by a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Moorea Biocode Project sent researchers climbing up jagged peaks, trekking through lush forests and diving down to coral reefs to sample the French Polynesian island's animal and plant life. The resulting database is publicly available as a resource for ecologists and evolutionary biologists around the world.
