This is one of the best resources I've encountered for a pretty full list of every type of optical illusion out there. So cool. #visualization   #perception

Working in visualization for biology? Want to come to Boston, to ISMB this summer? Submit a BioVis poster! 

Submission deadline is May 24, 2014.
http://www.biovis.net/year/2014/info/posters

The 4th Symposium on Biological Data Visualization (BioVis 2014, July 11-12) invites poster contributions addressing all aspects of visualization in biology, from molecular to cell, tissue, organism, and population biology. For the first time, BioVis will be held as a special interest group (SIG) meeting associated with the leading Bioinformatics conference, ISMB.

The BioVis symposium as a whole aims to promote interaction between the visualization, bioinformatics, and biology communities. The BioVis poster session offers an interactive forum that encourages graphical presentation, demonstration, and active engagement with BioVis participants as well as all ISMB attendees.

The BioVis 2014 Posters track offers a venue to present and discuss:
 * new research in biological data visualization
 * previously published work from other venues
 * visualization challenges relevant to the BioVis community

Submissions take the form of a short (250-word) abstract with a supporting figure and are presented at the conference site as large format posters during a dedicated poster session.

Create Bioinformatics Pipelines using Spotify !!

A lot of big streaming companies like Spotify, Pandora, etc are more and more pushing towards a better and more stable frameworks and the best thing to do that is to go open source and get useful feedbacks and keep working on making the platform better.

Spotify developed a platform called Luigi, a python framework to handle users logs, and mine them intuitively by plugging several machine learning algorithms to improve their recommendation systems and their suggestions to clients.
