Computational Biology Seminar: Dr. Chris Cotsapas, "Combining Genetics and Genomics to Gain Biological Insights"

As genetic and genomic studies become routine, new approaches are required to wrest biological insights from these data. These approaches must address the multifactorial nature of complex traits, the gene regulatory effects likely driving much of that architecture, and recognize that mechanisms can be used in multiple cell types across many contexts.

Recent Progress in the Study of Single Molecule Chemistry at the Nanometer Length Scale and Picosecond Time Scale

During the last few years, there has been an explosion of interest and activity in the field of plasmonics. The goal of plasmonics is to control and manipulate light on the nanometer length scale using the properties of the collective electronic excitations in noble metal films or nanoparticles, known as surface plasmons. An improved understanding of the interactions between adsorbed molecules...
