Software for science: design and debug a bacteria
Scientific progress cannot happen without data and software – and it’s much more efficient if the data is public and the software is open source. It is possible to genetically modify microorganisms to produce life saving drugs and sustainable biofuels, and software makes it so much faster. The talk will cover the challenges of software development in scientific environment, the importance of community effort and how to adopt the best development practices to design the living cell in the browser window.
