Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
Neurotree is an online, open access database that tracks mentor relationships between individuals in the field of neuroscience. This dataset provides insight into the influence of mentorship on research programs and professional success. Building Neurotree, recent efforts have expanded this system into the Academic Family Tree, an academic genealogy spanning all fields of research.
