Abstract: Here, I present work on genomic epidemiology of Ebola virus and evolutionary dynamics of seasonal influenza virus. In both cases, we're using the Nextstrain platform to pull in sequence data in near real-time and generate inferences of epidemic patterns. For the ongoing outbreak of Ebola in North Kivu in the DRC, inferences focus on individual-level transmission patterns to aid in...

The Materials Project and Data-driven Materials Design: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. Kristin Persson, UC Berkeley, Materials Science & Engineering
The powerful combination of supercomputing resources, robust algorithms for solving the laws of physics, and state-of-the-art software infrastructure are enabling rapid, systematic calculations of real materials properties from quantum mechanics across chemistry and structure. A result of this paradigm change are databases like the Materials Project (www.materialsproject.org) which is charting...
