Big data can mean big headaches for scientists. A new library of software tools from Janelia speeds analysis of data sets so large and complex they would take days or weeks to analyze on a single workstation—if a single workstation could do it at all.
Janelia researchers develop a new computational method that can essentially automate much of the time-consuming process of reconstructing an animal's developmental building plan cell by cell.
Fifteen outstanding researchers from 13 institutions are named HHMI Professors.
HHMI and GBMF announce the establishment of an Advanced Imaging Center at Janelia that will make leading-edge imaging technologies more widely available to the scientific community before the instruments are available commercially.
Every millisecond counts when a fruit fly is being hunted by a damselfly. Janelia scientists find that fruit flies can deploy two escape behaviors, depending on circumstances.
HHMI researchers find that a single-letter change in the genetic code is enough to generate blond hair in humans.
Through its 2014 Sustaining Excellence competition, HHMI is awarding new science education grants that will support activities at 37 research universities.
HHMI selects 37 research universities to receive $60 million in grants to improve how science is taught.
Peter Walter shares prize for discovery of the unfolded protein response of the endoplasmic reticulum.
The University of Maryland, Baltimore County, the Pennsylvania State University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and HHMI are working together to learn how to adapt the Meyerhoff Scholars Program at more universities.
HHMI scientists are among ten newly elected foreign members.

Seventy medical and veterinary students from 37 different schools across the country will be engaging in laboratory research for a full year as participants in the HHMI Medical Research Fellows Program.
Janelia researchers speed up image-processing time and get sharper microscopy images by employing techniques used by astonomers and ophthalmologists.
John P. Donoghue, Director of the Institute for Brain Science at Brown University, will speak on April 30 at 7PM at Janelia.
HHMI researchers have tested the olfactory capacity of human volunteers and found that humans are capable of discriminating at least one trillion different odors.
HHMI researchers show that rising temperatures can cause spread of malaria to areas where the disease had not been endemic historically.
Investigadores del HHMI demuestran que el aumento de temperaturas puede causar la dispersión de la malaria en zonas donde la enfermedad no ha sido endémica históricamente.
Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) scientists have created a portrait of a DNA-snipping protein called Cas9, a powerful research tool used in many labs for genome editing.
In the last five years, 4,800 students at 73 colleges and universities nationwide have taken HHMI's Science Education Alliance (SEA) Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science (PHAGES) research course.
New research from HHMI scientists reveals how a foreign-DNA-destroying system, known as CRISPR, efficiently locates its DNA targets within a bacterial genome.
By studying which genes modern humans still retain from our Neanderthal ancestors, researchers are able to tell a clearer story about the biological impact of human-Neanderthal interbreeding.
In his "Dialogues of Discovery" talk at Janelia on February 26, 2014, HHMI investigator Jeremy Nathans will explore the diverse ways in which color vision has evolved.
