Mad cows and crazy proteins: understanding how the prion protein folds and misfolds at the single-molecule level

Seminar | May 8 | 12-1 p.m. | 177 Stanley Hall

 Michael T. Woodside, University of Alberta

 QB3 - California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences

Prion diseases like "mad cow" disease are caused by the protein PrP, which forms an incorrect structure that is both toxic to neurons and infectious, in the sense that it can propagate the misfolding. The mechanisms by which misfolded PrP forms and spreads remain poorly understood. I will discuss our studies of PrP misfolding in the single-molecule regime, using high-resolution optical tweezers...   More >

Seminar | May 8 | 12:30-1:30 p.m. | Soda Hall, Visual Computing Lab (VCL)

 Michael Chen, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Imaging biological samples under optical microscopes is challenging, since the absorption is too weak to form images with informative contrast. Besides fluorescent imaging techniques, label-free phase contrast imaging methods have been proposed to greatly improve the contrast of transparent samples. In order to efficiently recover quantitative properties, such as 2D phase projection and 3D...   More >

Topology Seminar (Introductory Talk): Scissor Congruence and Mixed Tate Motives

Seminar | May 8 | 2:10-3 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Daniil Rudenko, University of Chicago

 Department of Mathematics

Scissor congruence theory of polytopes is an old subject going back to 19th century. One of its first major achievements was appearance of so-called Dehn invariant. This mysterious invariant could be properly understood and generalized in the context of the theory of mixed Hodge structures of mixed Tate type. I will explain this relation and show some applications to hyperbolic geometry.

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

While state-of-the-art machine learning models are deep, large-scale, sequential and highly nonconvex, the backbone of modern learning algorithms are simple algorithms such as stochastic gradient descent, or Q-learning (in the case of reinforcement learning tasks). A basic question endures---why do simple algorithms work so well even in these challenging settings?

Seminar | May 8 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 3 Evans Hall

 Daniil Rudenko, University of Chicago

I will explain how to construct a rational elliptic surface out of every non-Euclidean tetrahedra. This surface "remembers" the trigonometry of the tetrahedron: the length of edges, dihedral angles and the volume can be naturally computed in terms of the surface. The main property of this construction is self-duality: the surfaces obtained from the tetrahedron and its dual coincide. This leads to...   More >

One of Brazil’s most popular and respected musicians and composers, Antonio Carlos “Tom” Jobim found himself the face (or at least the sound) of a new Brazil when his songs such as “The Girl from Ipanema” and “Desafinado” seduced the world with their clear, cool, sensual style.
