Ribosomal Protein Modeling for Trypanosoma Brucei from a 5.16A EM Density Map

CVC Seminar Wed Sept 28 1:15-2:30pm ACES 4.304

Speaker: Zhang Qin

Title: Ribosomal Protein Modeling for Trypanosoma Brucei from a 5.16A EM Density Map

Abstract As the protein-synthesis machine, the ribosome has been intensively researched including structure, function, evolution, genetics and dynamics during the past several decades. Compared to the prokaryotic ribosome, the eukaryotic ribosome is much larger and . . . → Read More: Ribosomal Protein Modeling for Trypanosoma Brucei from a 5.16A EM Density Map

Classification of Heterogeneous Particles in Cryo-EM Reconstructions

CVC Seminar Wed Sept 21 1:15-2:30pm ACES 4.304

Speaker: E. Greg Daniel

Title: Classification of Heterogeneous Particles in Cryo-EM Reconstructions

Abstract: One of the common approaches in single particle reconstruction of viruses is Cryo-Electron Microscopy. In this approach, a large sample of particles (with unknown orientations) are produced, and then an electron micrograph is created . . . → Read More: Classification of Heterogeneous Particles in Cryo-EM Reconstructions

VolumeRover updates

Some newer binaries were posted not long ago for Mac OSX, Windows and Linux. Also, automatic twitter updates from svn commits broke earlier this summer but are now working again. Check it out!   Note, if the commit message is longer than ~134 characters, it will be silently ignored and not posted to twitter.  Will . . . → Read More: VolumeRover updates

Polyhedron Separation

CVC Seminar Wed Sept 7 1:15-2:30pm ACES 4.304

Speaker: John Edwards

Title: Polyhedron Separation

Abstract: A polyhedron K is said to separate polyhedra P and Q if any path from any point on the surface of Q to any point on the surface of P passes through the surface of K. An optimal separating polyhedron among all K . . . → Read More: Polyhedron Separation
