A Reddit ask-us-anything with the Moore Data Driven Discovery Investigators

Today at 3pm EST, the Moore Data Driven Discovery Investigators will be answering questions on reddit, in the science "ask me anything (AMA)" series. This is an opportunity to ask us anything you want about our research, data-driven discovery more generally, or ...well, you tell us!

Go here to see the questions and our answers.

A (slightly updated) list of the Investigators and some of their proposals is below.
