Complicated sets of biological data can be challenging to extrapolate meaningful information from. Wanting to find a better way to look at this data led Berkley Walker, assistant professor at the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory (PRL) and the Department of Plant Biology, to team up with statistician and Assistant Professor Chih-Li Sung from the Department of Statistics and Probability.
