Meta.org will sunset March 31, 2022

At CZI, we work in areas where we think we can have an outsized impact through technology development, interdisciplinary research collaborations, and partnerships.

With Meta, our goal was to give researchers, patient communities, science societies, and research organizations more ways to discover the research they need. We did this by…

The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrates just how swiftly science can move. Much of the credit belongs to scientists’ ingenuity and grit. Single-cell biology also comes into play. New single-cell datasets and tech tools that support their analysis and the dissemination of results are also helping unlock the mysteries of COVID-19.

Cellxgene Explorer gives researchers the power to visualize single-cell datasets and unearth interesting biology in an accessible way. Here, lung tissue data from Tabula Sapiens, a reference set of cells collected from many different tissues, is colored by cell type and filtered to isolate immune cells for further analysis.

A Conversation with Adele Balmer, a CZI State Science and Technology Policy Fellow, on Connecting Science and Government

Adele Balmer is equally at home bird watching along the Virginia coast, knocking on the doors of politicians in Washington, D.C., and crunching health data at her desktop computer. What connects these activities is her enduring passion for science and for using science to drive positive change.

As a CZI State Science and Technology Policy Fellow, Adele Balmer used her data science skills to investigate healthcare spending in Virginia.

Balmer is a…

Python viewer brings together deep learning community and lab scientists

Datasets in science are getting big and unruly. Thankfully, there are people like Carsen Stringer to wrangle them into shape.

A few years ago, she started looking for a way to process terabytes of brain images collected across HHMI’s Janelia Research Campus, where she’s a group leader. Stringer wanted a…

Introducing Aspen, an Open-Source Tool To Help Departments of Public Health Track and Slow the Spread of COVID-19 and Prepare for Future Crises

As COVID-19 quickly spread across California and the U.S. in the spring of 2020, our teams at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) and the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub (CZ Biohub) believed that two approaches had the potential to significantly impact the spread of the virus. The first was increased availability of…
