Welcome to the Data Science website, dedicated to the philosophy of data-intensive science and the history and social studies of the lives and journeys of ‘big data’ in the sciences, and particularly (but not exclusively) the biological and biomedical sciences.
This work is coordinated by Sabina Leonelli at the University of Exeter (UK), mainly through the generous funding of the European Research Council; and it involves many other researchers and projects funded by the Leverhulme Trust, the Australian Research Council, the UK Economic and Social Research Council, and others. The research work is based at the Exeter Centre for the Study of the Life Sciences.
This website hosts information about all of these projects and scholars, as well as resources and publications on data-intensive science, and news and events relating to our work. You are warmly invited to leave us feedback either through our twitterfeed @DataScienceFeed or by emailing us.
The Data Crunch: Every Thursday morning at 09h, the Data Studies group in Exeter gathers over breakfast. Anyone interested is cordially invited! We meet on Streatham campus at La Touche... Find here the reading list.
