Defense: Modeling of Biochemical States of DNA Replication using Hidden Markov Models

Matthew Simms
PhD Candidate (Advisor: Hongyun Wang and Herbert Lee)

Abstract:  In nanopore experiments, DNA replication facilitated by phi-29 DNA polymerase (DNAP) can be observed. The biochemical state of the DNA-DNAP complex was studied by setting the complex atop a alpha-hemolysin nanopore and applying an electric voltage. The movement of the DNA strand... Read More

AM Seminar: Computational Optimal Control of Uncertain Nonlinear Systems

Qi Gong

Abstract Optimal control problems with parameter and/or initial condition uncertainty have arisen in multiple recent applications, including motional planning, ensemble control, and optimal search. This talk will discuss tools for applying computational optimal control techniques to problems with... Read More
