FORA.tv Speaker - Morgan Langille
Morgan Langille is currently a member of the iSEEM research group supported by the Moore Foundation for improving computational methods for metagenomics data. In particular, he is interested in leverging metagenomics data to improve the classification and prediction of genes with no known functions.
In addition, he is interested in large datasets and improving the accessibility of results, software, and datasets in science. To improve the transfer speeds of data Morgan developed BioTorrents, a website that allows open sharing of scientific data using the popular peer-to-peer BitTorrent sharing program. A manuscript describing BioTorrents was recently published in PLoS One.
