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.

New Topics, Technologies and New Times: Japan Ahead

Conference/Symposium | February 24 | 9 a.m. | International House, Ida & Robert Sproul Room


Center for Japanese Studies (CJS), Japan Society for the Promotion of Science


Academic communities play an important role in shaping international perspectives. Scholars work within broad networks, developing thoughtful insights on emerging changes long before others become aware of their implications. Students, whether within Japan and abroad, will in time become tomorrow’s leaders. How we shape their understanding of Japan establishes powerful influence on the way they......   More >

Dissertation Talk: Dan Calderone: Models of Competition for Smart Cities: Routing Games, Mean-field Games, and Varying Population Preferences

Lecture | February 24 | 9-10 a.m. | Cory Hall, 521 Hogan Room


Dan Calderone

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)


Competition underlies much of the complexity of modern transportation systems and correctly modeling the incentives that transportation users face is critical in designing the smart cities of tomorrow. In the past century, classical routing games have proved a powerful tool in modeling competition in transportation. In this talk, we explore several extensions of routing games to model scenarios......   More >


Engineering at the Intersection of Productive Efficiency, Ideology, and Ethical AI in Wikipedia

Lecture | February 24 | 1:10-2:30 p.m. | 190 Doe Library


Aaron Halfaker, Principal Research Scientist, Wikimedia Foundation; Senior Scientist, University of Minnesota

Berkeley Institute for Data Science


Wikipedia has become a dominant source of reference information for more than half a billion people every month. Through its improbable rise to popularity, this "free encyclopedia that anyone can edit" has become a synecdoche for open production communities online. In order to operate at massive scales (~160k edits per day), Wikipedians have embraced algorithmic technologies that bring efficiency......   More >

In the last decades nanoscale inorganic objects emerged as a novel type of matter with unique functional properties and a plethora of prospective applications. Although a broad range of nano-synthesis methods has been developed, our abilities to organize these nano-components into designed static and reconfigurable architectures are quite limited.

Molecular encoding of nano-object allows......   More >
