Simulations explore the role of the “Rock, Paper, Scissors” game in evolution and the maintenance of biodiversity
If we wish to “do” biology on computers, we face the same kind of challenges that the designers of programming languages have had to grapple with for decades.
Ronin Institute seminar on cellular modeling from Amber Biology’s Alex Lancaster is now up on the Institute’s YouTube channel
Amber Biology’s unique Python for Life Scientists course expanding to 10-12 weeks.
In October of last year, Gordon gave a seminar on agent-based, stochastic modeling for The Ronin Institute.
Here’s a simple but illuminating population dynamics model, the central algorithm for which can be implemented in only 5 lines of Python.
Hot off the press at The Digital Biologist is this tutorial on how to build a dynamic, agent-based model of a cell signaling network.
Alex Lancaster will talk about Amber Biology & TESS at University of New England’s Kirby Observatory in New South Wales, Australia.
If you’re working in genomics or next-generation sequencing, don’t swallow the myth that Python is too slow for the kind of heavy computation that you need.
As this beautiful image with over 200,000 stars shows, the cameras on the NASA TESS spacecraft are now working and beaming images back to earth.
There are excellent reasons for biologists to consider looking beyond differential equations as their tool of choice for modeling and simulating biological systems.
Amber Biology Partner, Alex Lancaster, will be presenting at the Statistical Bioinformatics Seminar at the Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney.
Here we develop a simple Python function to help us evaluate the performance of biomarkers in diagnosing disease.
TESS is in orbit and there are a lot of very happy people on the NASA TESS mission team today!
TESS LAUNCH DAY!!! It's finally T-minus a few hours until the launch of the TESS mission on a SpaceX Falcon booster.
Amber Biology was recently commissioned by a biotechnology company, to build a dynamic, agent-based model of a biological pathway.
As part of the mission team, Amber Biology's partners got to sign the TESS Mission plaque, one version of which will be attached to the satellite.
We are very excited to start teaching our 8-week course Python For Life Scientists at Boston Children's Hospital on Feb. 13th.

Are you fluent in Python and would like to help us teach a beginner's Python course?
We had some fun reworking our company logo appropriately for the season. We hope you enjoy it and that you all have a great Halloween!
