Abstract We systematically generated large-scale data sets to improve genome annotation for the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, a key model organism. These data sets include transcriptome profiling across a developmental time course, genome-wide identification of transcription factor–binding sites, and maps of chromatin … Continue reading
Abstract Summary: The advent of next-generation sequencing for functional genomics has given rise to quantities of sequence information that are often so large that they are difficult to handle. Moreover, sequence reads from a specific individual can contain sufficient information … Continue reading
“[Languages] should be treated as a part of a modelling theory. Up to now I don’t think we had sufficient incentive to make sure that our languages are close to scientific models. It’s only with the onset of computation as … Continue reading
I’m spending the week at the 3rd Annual Joint Conference on Systems Biology, Regulatory Genomics, and Reverse Engineering Challenges.
The number of computers I have accounts on has recently exploded, and manually editing my .bashrc file on each of these computers started getting tedious. I decided to resolve this by writing a single .bashrc file that can be copied … Continue reading
It’s official. I’m moving to NYU. This will be a great opportunity for me to push my agenda of bringing functional programming techniques to biology. I’m fortunate enough to be working there with Kris Gunsalus and Rich Bonneau. Many thanks … Continue reading
“I consider a priori a law… Without this belief, … interpolation would be impossible; no law could be deduced from a finite number of observations; science would not exist.” — Poincare (1913, p. 170)
“If one is interested in the relations between fields which, according to customary academic divisions, belong to different departments, then he will not be welcomed as a builder of bridges, as he might have expected, but will rather be regarded … Continue reading
Functional programmers unite at ICFP! I’ll also be at the ML Worskhop, Haskell Symposium, and CUFP.
