Birck Nanotechnology Center

Center fo Scient of Information talks and poster session

December 4 @ 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM - Lawson 1142 & Lawson Commons

David Tse, UC Berkeley
Title:  Optimal Whole Genome Shotgun Assembly: From Simple Models to Complex Data
Tuesday, December 04, 2012
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST
LWSN 1142

Professor Tse will speak on using information theory approaches in DNA sequencing focused on two basic questions: what is the minimum read length and the minimum number of reads required for reliable reconstruction? What is an optimal assembly algorithm that achieves the minimum? He will describe the basis of a systematic data-driven approach to designing optimal assembly algorithms.

Research Poster Session - Lawson Commons - 3 - 4pm

Tsachy Weissman, Stanford University
Title:  Fundamental Limits and Algorithms for Some Modern Data Processing Problems

Seminar
Tuesday, December 04, 2012
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
LWSN 1142

Professor Weissman will describe recent and ongoing work on centralized and distributed compression, querying, and processing of big data. Emphasis will be on open questions.
