Connecting Black women in computational biology

Jenea Adams, a second year PhD student, found it hard to connect with other Black women in her field of study. She then decided to create the Black Women in Computational Biology Network, which has attracted the support of many researchers. We spoke to her about the Network, as well as gender and racial inequality.

We encourage our readers to find out more about the Network by following their website and their Twitter account.
