The Wisconsin Institute for Discovery’s SILO and Qbio Seminars pull researchers from across campus for engaging interdisciplinary talks in mathematics and quantitative biology.
Systems Biology researchers Deborah Chasman and Sushmita Roy are using machine learning to identify virus and pathogenicity-specific regulatory networks which may guide the design of effective therapeutics for infectious diseases. The work is described in a recent paper in PLOS Computational Biology.
Tools for Discovery is a regular profile series that inspects the computer programs, gadgets and methods behind WID’s ideas and discoveries.
Systems Biology researchers explore the importance of community history and assembly when considering microbial communities in a paper in Nature Communications.
Mentoring 49 Ph.D. students during his active time at UW-Madison and shaping the careers of many more, including WID’s John Yin, Ed Lightfoot and his iconic textbook Transport Phenomena continue to push interdisciplinary research forward.
John Yin spoke at the Discovery Seminar Series in January, 2016, offering his perspective on the origins of life, dynamic stability, and developing collaborations.
The paper, titled ‘High-throughput single-cell kinetics of virus infections in the presence of defective interfering particles’, was published in the current issue of the Journal of Virology.
John Yin, Professor of Chemical Engineering and Systems Biology theme leader at WID, is beginning an interdisciplinary initiative to examine the origins of life with new methods, approaches, and perspectives.
Researchers at WID are continually publishing premier research in top publications. Here, we feature some of the most important and transformative scientific publications from our community.
