The BEACON project has gotten some good coverage in U.S. Black Engineer & Information Technology. The magazine devotes three-plus pages to the piece, which includes interviews with Dr. Gerry Dozier (Computer Science) and Dr. Joseph Graves (now of the JSNN). The article can be found on the magazine’s website.
The BEACON Center for the Study of Evolution in Action brings together biologists, computer scientists, and engineers to study evolution as it happens and apply this knowledge to solve real-world problems. BEACON is an NSF Science and Technology Center, headquartered at Michigan State University. North Carolina A&T is a partner, along with the University of Idaho, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Washington. More on BEACON can be found on the project’s website.
