Recent Updates:

  1. (May 2016) I will be chairing a session at the Gordon Research Conference about Variant Effects in the Era of Genome Sequencing. The conference takes place in June 2016. Abstract and poster submission until May 15, 2016.

  2. (May 2016) I am visiting Technical University Munich in Germany as an August-Wilhelm Scheer Visiting Professor.

  3. (May 2016) Kym will be giving a talk at ISMB's VarI-SIG in Orlando, Florida. Jose, Vikas and Yuxiang to attend ISMB too.

  4. (April 2016) Chao's paper on identification of cross-linked peptides accepted in the Journal of Proteome Research. Manuscript available here.

  5. (April 2016) Chao defends Ph.D. dissertation on April 11. Congratulations!

  6. (March 2016) Our session of the evolution of molecular function accepted for Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing 2017. The session is co-organized with Yana Bromberg and Matt Hahn. Consider submitting a paper!

  7. (March 2016) Ruiyu's pre-print on new distance metrics on sets, ontologies and functions is now available on arXiv. The paper also introduces functional phylogenies.

  8. (February 2016) Vikas receives eScience Moore/Sloan Data Science and Washington Research Foundation Innovation in Data Science Postdoctoral Fellowship, at the University of Washington.

  9. (January 2016) Shantanu's pre-print on estimating class priors from positive and unlabeled data is now available on arXiv.

  10. (January 2016) Iddo Friedberg and I wrote a book chapter about CAFA assessments that is accepted for the Handbook of Gene Ontology. Pre-print available on arXiv.

  11. (January 2016) CAFA2 pre-print, with Yuxiang as the major contributor, is now available on arXiv.

  12. (December 2015) I will continue on the Bioinformatics Editorial Board for another three years, until end of 2018.

  13. (December 2015) I am now a senior member of the ISCB. If you are new to bioinformatics and computational biology, and also if you are not, consider joining the society. There are many many benefits there both for you and the scientific discipline!

Evolution of Molecular Function at PSB 2017

Yana Bromberg, Matt Hahn and I are organizing a session on the evolution of molecular function at PSB 2017. Details here. Submit a paper! (Deadline: August 1, 2016)
