BLISS Seminar: DNA Sequencing: From Information Limits to Assembly Software

Seminar | February 21 | 2-3 p.m. | 400 Cory Hall

 Ilan Shomorony, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Emerging long-read sequencing technologies promise to enable near-perfect reconstruction of whole genomes. Assembly of long reads is usually accomplished using a read-overlap graph, in which the true sequence corresponds to a Hamiltonian path. As such, the assembly problem becomes NP-hard under most formulations, and most of the known algorithmic approaches are heuristic in nature.

 Peter Dale Scott; Robert Hass

 Department of English

T.S. Eliot and Czeslaw Milosz, both great but idiosyncratic poets, can be closely compared but also contrasted. Milosz was deeply indebted to Eliot’s notion of the poet’s relationship to the “ideal order” of the past. But Milosz (who unlike Eliot believed himself to be guided by a daimonion or inner voice) also revived the belief of Blake and Whitman in the responsibility of poets to break with...   More >

While tattooing is an increasingly popular topic of study, it is rarely discussed in the past owing to the infrequent identification of tattoos in human remains. This is particularly true in dynastic Egypt, where physical evidence of tattooing is limited to a set of three female Middle Kingdom mummies discovered nearly a century ago.

Poissonian rain coloring and a self-similar process of coalescing planar partitions

Seminar | February 22 | 3:10-4 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

 David Aldous, U. C. Berkeley

 Department of Statistics

Plant differently colored points in the plane; then let random points (``Poisson rain") fall, and give each new point the color of the nearest existing point. Previous investigation and simulations strongly suggest that the colored regions converge (in some sense) to a random partition of the plane. We prove a weak version of this.

Many real-world examples of fluid-structure interaction, including the transit of red blood cells through the narrow slits in the spleen, involve the near-contact of elastic structures separated by thin layers of fluid. Motivated by such problems, we introduce an immersed boundary method that uses elements of lubrication theory to resolve thin fluid layers between immersed boundaries. We applying...   More >

Web crawling, snowball sampling, and respondent-driven sampling (RDS) are three types of network driven sampling techniques that are popular when it is difficult to contact individuals in the population of interest. This talk will show that if participants refer too many other participants, then under the standard Markov model in the RDS literature, the standard approaches do not provide "square...   More >

Automorphic forms are functions on a class of homogeneous spaces that arise naturally in geometry and number theory and that enjoy particularly strong symmetry properties (the simplest non-trivial example is the circle). Galois representations are efficient ways of packaging meaningful information about solutions to polynomial equations; the cohomology of algebraic varieties provides a rich...   More >

In January 1951, R.S. Hunt—a British technical editor and former chemist without any university degree or diploma—sent a manuscript titled “Two Kinds of Work” to the mathematician Norbert Wiener, who did not read it. Hunt’s manuscript promises to “put metaphysics within the scope of physics.” And it claims to do so by making “such quantities as beauty, virtue, and happiness,” as well as all...   More >
