Abstract Diagnosis and treatment methods based on big genomic data are becoming widespread as the cost of genome sequencing decreases gradually. In this context, disease-gene association studies are of great importance. The genomic data is very sensitive when compared to other data types and contains information about the individual and his / her relatives. Many ...

In an increasingly connected world, managing and using the growing amount of data is a major challenge for our society. Today, from health care to transport, social networks, commerce and industry, all aspects of our lives are put into data. But how can we manage this infinite and constantly growing mass of information? This is ... Read more about "micro18"

Genomic knowledge is about to profoundly change medicine, by making it more precise and personal. At the crossroad between basic science and the clinical world, my research group’s ambition is to contribute to this exciting transformation. We use genomic and bioinformatic approaches to identify and characterize genome variants that can explain the inter-individual differences observed ...

We consider transmission over a cloud radio access network (CRAN) focusing on the framework of oblivious processing at the relay nodes (radio units), i.e., the relays are not cognizant of the users' codebooks. This approach is motivated by future wireless communications (5G and beyond) and the theoretical results connect to a variety of different information ...

Abstract The introduction of computational resources at the network edge allows us to offload computation from clients and/or servers, thereby reducing response latency, backbone bandwidth, and computational requirements on clients. More fundamentally, edge-computing moves us from a Client-Server model to a Client-Edge-Server model. While this is an attractive paradigm for many applications, it raises the ...

Institute of Microengineering - Distinguished Lecture Abstract: Our insatiable demand for sensing, communication and computing has been a key driver in the relentless scaling of CMOS feature sizes. However, as the benefits of technology scaling are coming to an end, an increasing amount of out of the box thinking will be required to maintain the ...

DISTINGUISHED LECTURE IN BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING (sandwiches served) Abstract: Next generation drug-delivery vehicles aimed to carry biological drugs, such as proteins or nucleic acids, are often designed to mimic how natural biological nanoparticles, such as viruses and exosomes, transfer genetic information between cells in vivo. Due to the large heterogeneity of nanoparticles irrespective of whether they ... Read more about "Single nanoparticle analytics: from viruses via exosomes to drug carriers"

The vast majority of our knowledge on vibrio pathogenesis is based on the ancient and well-studied human pathogen, V. cholerae. Often neglected and relegated to specialized journals are vibrio infections in non-human species. While the studies of animal pathogens have benefited from the era of genomics, the search for pathogenesis determinants is often biased by ...

Crystal Structure Prediction (CSP) methods were developed on the assumption that an organic molecule would crystallize in its most stable crystal structure. Even implementing this approach is a challenge to computational chemistry methods,[1] as shown by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre’s blind tests.[2] Polymorphism adds additional challenges, as this is usually a kinetic phenomenon with ...

Abstract: Have you ever been stuck in meetings with discussions going in circles, meetings from which no decision emerges or one with which everyone is frustrated? Do you sometimes feel that you misunderstood the relationships among members of your professional or personal circles? Have you ever wondered how you could get to stop smoking, eat ...
