Of all the thermodynamic variables, our theoretical methods have the greatest control over pressure. The foundation of modern density functional based total energy methods rests on early studies on the behaviour of crystals under pressure. High pressure experiments are, however, far from straightforward. These experiments typically involve only small quantities of the sample of interest. ...

SEMINAR SERIES : Trends in Physiology and Metabolism (Bio-682) Abstract: One of the fundamental tenants of biology tells us that DNA is transcribed into RNA, which is translated into protein, which affect the levels of the metabolites which carry out cellular actions. Microarrays and nucleotide sequencing technologies have made the measurement of DNA and RNA ... Read more about "Making Use of 'Omics: From Systems Genetics to Cell Biology"

Over the past few years, Wikidata – Wikipedia sister’s project and the free knowledge base that anyone can edit – has been adopted by a growing number of communities of practice and scientific groups as their infrastructure of choice. In this talk, I will show how expert communities, volunteers and algorithms are collaborating to build ... Read more about "Connecting the sum of all human knowledge, one edit at a time"

Amalio Telenti directs HLI-X, the unit at Human Longevity that develops advanced analytics in genomics and data sciences. He has recently led the analysis of the first 10,000 deep sequenced human genomes, as well as the definition of the complete map of conservation of the regulatory structures in the human genome (PNAS 2016). His team ... Read more about "The human genome at scale"

Par : Jean-Pascal Pfister and Arko Ghosh - ETH, University of Zurich Abstract : Discovering the fundamental principles that govern human behavior is a major and exciting challenge. The rise of smartphones has created unprecedented opportunities for cognitive neuroscience to study unconstrained human behavior reversing the traditional focus on highly artificial laboratory experiments. For theoretical ... Read more about "IC Colloquium : To tap or not to tap: Theoretical and cognitive neurosciences to explain smartphone behaviour"

We show the existence of independent random matching of a large population in a continuous-time dynamical system, where the matching intensities could be general non-negative jointly continuous functions on the space of type distributions and the time line. In particular, we construct a continuum of independent continuous-time Markov processes that is derived from random mutation, ... Read more about "Bernoulli Lecture - Continuous-time random matching"
