    26. Mapping tissues and tumors

    How do we find our way? Consulting a map is the age-old answer, at least geographically.  But the art of mapping - considered a superpower by one of this episode's guests - extends to anything we want to understand better.  Join Conor and Dodi on this exploration of data visualization.  Your challenge at the end of the episode - spend time on these sites:

    http://scimaps.org

    https://www.pnas.org/modeling

    https://visanalytics.cns.iu.edu

    thanks to our guests Paul Goodwin from Cytiva and Katy Borner at the University of Indiana.
