CMU’s scQuery Web Server Uses New Method To Determine Cell Types, Identify Key Genes Computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University say neural networks and supervised machine learning techniques can efficiently characterize cells that have been studied using single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq). This finding could help researchers identify new cell subtypes and differentiate between healthy and diseased […]
Two first year students in our Computational Biology Ph.D. program and one recent graduate of the M.S. in Computational Biology program have had papers accepted for ISMB 2018, a top conference in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Xiangrui Zeng’s paper, titled “An integration of fast alignment and maximum-likelihood methods for electron subtomogram averaging and classification, proposes […]
The fellowship, a partnership between Intel and ACM SIGHPC, aims to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in computational and data science graduate programs worldwide.
William Casazza During his time at CMU, William worked in Dr. Schwartz’s lab, revisiting algorithms for building optimal maximum parsimony phylogenetic trees from tissue variation data (e.g. sequencing data, copy number variants and protein sequence data). The model that William reconstructed looks at how certain cells changed from one state to another. Next year, William […]
This is the first structure-based study of chromosomal dynamics using elastic network models, between the Bahar and Kingsford labs.
In addition to his role as an Assistant Teaching Professor, Dr. Compeau will be overseeing the new Computational Biology Undergraduate Program within the School of Computer Science, as well as serving as an assistant director of the MSCB (Master of Science in Computational Biology) program.
Presenting the latest episode of the CBD Office Visit Series featuring Dr. Phillip Compeau! We stopped by Phillip’s office to chat about our newest degree, the Bachelor of Science in Computational Biology (BSCB) as well as the Master of Science in Computational Biology (MSCB). View the video below, and visit our Youtube page for more videos from […]
