Hardware-enabled biology: From hardware-acceleration to novel biological discoveries

Yatish Turakhia
PhD candidate, Electrical Engineering Department

Abstract Computer architecture and genomics offer starkly contrasting but synergistic trends. While genome sequencing data continues to rise exponentially (80%/year), transistor performance scaling has considerably slowed down (3%/year). Domain-specific acceleration (DSA), which uses specialized... Read More

CPSRC Seminar Series: Decentralized Control of Stochastic Dynamical Cyber-Physical Systems

Rahul Singh
Deep Learning Group Engineer

  Abstract Many important cyber-physical systems of great current interest are decentralized, consisting of many agents, and uncertainties. Designing decentralized control policies is a challenging task because it involves inducing coordination amongst the controllers without knowing all... Read More

Defense: New tools for localizing ancestry across genomes of hybrids provide insight into the genetics of speciation

Nathan Schaefer
PhD Candidate (Advisor: Ed Green)

Abstract:  Understanding the processes by which new species arise has long been of interest to evolutionary geneticists. In some cases, abrupt changes in habitat or niche can spur on a suite of adaptive changes in one population that help lead to its genetic isolation from others. In cases... Read More
