Janelia Journal Club #2

summary

The second presentation that Alyson and I gave during the Janelia Undergrad program, it was a brilliant paper that used Hidden Markov models to build a predictive algorithm that could tell you what chromatin states you were in.

Throughout the summer at Janelia Farm, the undergraduates had to present at journal club. Alyson, Pierre (other undergrads) and I presented at the first journal club. I designed the presentation and it can be seen below.

comp. neuro
30 november 2010 | science

Presentation I gave in 9.29, the computational neuroscience class at MIT. They attempted to build a model that could use the information ob[...]tained from recordings in the prefrontal cortex and other areas of a monkey brain to predict their behavior based on the 'state' their neuron groups were in.

bio42: notes
12 may 2013 | teaching

<p>While teaching bio42 (cell biology and animal physiology) I created weekly notes to help students in my section study [...]and focus on the important materials presented in the class. I built off of the latex boilerplate that I have been improving over time to create weekly notes. This highlights why I love <a href='http://www.latex-project.org/' target='_blank'>LaTeX</a> so much, especially for larger projects that are heavily linked&mdash;it allows easy annotation, indexing, creation of new document styles, and other related processes rapidly and consistently. Plus, separating content and style is always a plus and images stay uncoupled from a propriety source (e.g. Word files). </p> <p>I really love the resulting notes and student feedback was quite positive. I thought sharing them might be useful for others in the future. The source latex files and raw images can be sent upon request (I'm considering making a Github repository in the future). I'll briefly talk about the document below and certain decisions that were made to get it to its current state. </p>

week 2 | day and night
19 june 2012 | singapore

This pace can't keep up. Saw some crazy animals at a night safari, wandered around NUS's campus late at night (the place is chaotic, beauti[...]ful and slightly eerie at night), met with SUTD's president and more. It seems that staying in Singapore for most of the summer is a go, there is so much here to find out and explore. That might also be because I severely underestimated the size of the country (e.g. don't glance at a map's scale and assume 20 miles = 2 miles, haha). Anyhow, here goes, another eventful week summarized in small snippets.

Providing links to some articles and other resources that I have found useful while in graduate school. I'll continually update the list as[...] I find more.
