Data from: An integrated iterative annotation technique for easing neural network training in medical image analysis

Neural networks promise to bring robust, quantitative analysis to medical fields. However, their adoption is limited by the technicalities of training these networks and the required volume and quality of human-generated annotations. To address this gap in the field of pathology, we have created an intuitive interface for data annotation and the display of neural network predictions within a commonly used digital pathology whole-slide viewer. This strategy used a ‘human-in-the-loop’ to reduce the annotation burden....

Data from: Development and validation of rapid environmental DNA (eDNA) detection methods for bog turtle (Glyptemys muhlenbergii)

Anish Kirtane, Maxwell Wilder & Hyatt Green
Bog turtles Glyptemys muhlenbergii are listed as Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) for wildlife action plans in every state it occurs and multi-state efforts are underway to better characterize extant populations and prioritize restoration efforts. However, traditional sampling methods can be ineffective due to the turtle’s wetland habitat, small size, and burrowing nature. Molecular methods, such as qPCR, provide the ability to overcome this challenge by effectively quantifying minute amounts of turtle DNA left...

Data from: Invasion and high-elevation acclimation of the red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta, in the southern Blue Ridge escarpment region

Amanda J. Lafferty, Robert J. Warren & James T. Costa
The red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta) is a non-native invasive species that rapidly spread northward in the United States after its introduction from South America to the southern coast in the 1930s. Researchers predicted that the northward spread of this invasive ant would be limited by minimum temperatures with increased latitude and elevation in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The presence of S. invicta at relatively high elevations north of their projected limits suggests greater...
