- June 13, 2018:
Jasper discussed preliminary thoughts regarding rearrangement pathways of interleaving genes along the edges of the graph induced by pattern insertions and removals. Daniel explained the new proof idea for the "digon lemma" which he and Margherita developed. Shannon is still getting a handle on understanding the TDA software with which she will be working. Kyle has been reading papers related to gene ontology and learning R while he waits for communication from Rafik. James computed the D classes for strings of size 4 using GAP and talked about the composition of the D classes for strings of size 3 and size 4. Hayden processed the DOWs (up to size 13) from data D through his Python program for genus ranges and is still doing data analysis comparing these to the set of all DOWs (up to size 13). Hwee presented a result relating the separation of a DOW and whether it is reducible; he then went over a proof for this result using induction.
- June 06, 2018:
Shannon Stich joined the research group; Dr. Saito talked about the topological data analysis which she would be doing with Xiao's data and data D.
Hayden showed some more modifications which he has made to the Ryan Arredondo's program and discussed statistical analysis comparing the DOWs from data D and general DOWs. Kyle is currently working with Rafik on gene ontology analysis based on the discussions they had while Rafik visited.
- May 30, 2018:
James Garrett joined the research group. Hwee has resumed work on DOWs and gap vectors with Margherita; he was busy with submissions and reviews previously. Hayden updated and fixed Python code made by Ryan Arredondo for computing genus ranges and associated functions. Daniel and Margherita mentioned fixes to the repeat/return insertions manuscript. Lina is still working on the program for finding appropriate prod-simplicial cells. James gave a presentation on modeling DNA origami with algebraic structures (specifically monoids) based on Temperley-Lieb Algebra. Dr. Saito then discussed the relationship between this research, Catalan numbers, and knot theory.
- May 21, 2018:
The group discussed some conferences which a few members will attend. Each member then talked about their individual projects for the summer. Hwee then gave a presentation on site-directed deletion based on a submission to the upcoming DLT conference.
- May 16, 2018:
Rafik gave an introduction to biology behind the group's research on Oxytricha trifallax. He also presented some of the projects he is currently developing. Kyle then showed updates on the clustering analysis based on work he's been doing with Rafik this week.
