04/30/2012 - The Empowering Leadership Alliance (ELA) is a computer science (cs) student organization aimed at helping minorities gain a sense of the opportunities that are available in various fields in technology, primarily through mentorship and research collaboration. Dr. Richard Tapia at Rice University launched the ELA in 2007 at a national level, and The University of Texas at Austin is part of the leadership team. UTCS started an ELA student chapter in 2007, and our chapter is the largest in the nation.  Read more
04/30/2012 - Discoveries in bioinformatics provide new therapeutic interventions to disease by replacing expensive, time-consuming physical experiments with an automated computational search. Public databases now contain experimentally determined sequence and structural information for hundreds of thousands of proteins allowing for rather comprehensive digital investigation. Computational software and hardware limitations are the restricting factor in obtaining deeper understanding of molecular function from this available data. Read more
