Former NSF Program Director in the Plant Genome Research Program

We 'reductionist' biologists are good at thinking about one or two variables at a time, and I wanted to understand how different variables affect the problem under study. The rotator experience made me think about the challenges and opportunities in analyzing large sets of data across different data types and from different perspectives, giving me a more holistic view of my field.
