Sackler Lecture in Astronomy: A Decade at Saturn

Lecture: Top events | January 28 | 5 p.m. |  Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center

Dr. Carolyn Porco, Cassini Science Imaging Team

College of Letters & Science

A glistening spaceship, with seven lonely years and billions of miles behind it, glides into orbit around a softly-hued, ringed planet. A flying-saucer shaped machine descends through a hazy atmosphere and lands on the surface of an alien moon, ten times farther from the Sun than the Earth. Fantastic though they seem, these visions are not a dream. For seven years, the Cassini spacecraft and its......   More >

TRUST Security Seminar: Towards Trustworthy Modern Systems Using Data Science

Seminar: Top events | January 29 | 1-2 p.m. | 250 Sutardja Dai Hall

Neil Gong, University of California, Berkeley

Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (TRUST)

Modern systems such as social medias, mobile computing platforms, and wearable devices bring new benefits to almost all aspects of our lives. However, they are also plagued by both conventional and emerging threats to security and privacy. In this talk, I will demonstrate that data science, including machine learning, network science, and natural language processing, can play an important role......   More >

Computational Biology Seminar: Dr. Chris Cotsapas, &#34;Combining Genetics and Genomics to Gain Biological Insights&#34;

Seminar: Top events | January 29 | 1-2 p.m. | 177 Stanley Hall

Dr. Chris Cotsapas, Department of Neurology, Yale School of Medicine

Center for Computational Biology

As genetic and genomic studies become routine, new approaches are required to wrest biological insights from these data. These approaches must address the multifactorial nature of complex traits, the gene regulatory effects likely driving much of that architecture, and recognize that mechanisms can be used in multiple cell types across many contexts....   More >

Synthetic Biology to New Chemistry: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar: Top events | January 30 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

Prof. Michelle C. Chang, UC Berkeley, Chemistry Department

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Living systems have evolved the capacity to carry out many chemical transformations of interest to synthetic chemistry -- if they could be redesigned for targeted purposes.

One particularly interesting behavior observed in nature is the ability of directional-sensing bacteria to construct chains of magnetite nanocrystals using a specialized organelle. Our group is interested in studying and......   More >
