The overarching goal of this project is to develop analytic methods that enable scientists to efficiently and automatcially discover relationships between shape and function in biological systems. This work has been supported by the NSF Emerging Frontiers and Biological Infrastructure Divisions in the form of a large collaborative effort on bioshape (bioshapes.org, DBI-1053036) and a collaborative project on bioimage analysis for understanding pollen morphology and texture (DBI-1262547)
