Pluripotency is the unique characteristic of embryonic stem (ES) cells, which demonstrate the capacity to generate all somatic cell lineages. But how ES cells decide to transition to a given adult cell type remains unknown. In this project, we combine formal verification, model-checking and model synthesis into a new tool for uncovering the transcriptional program of pluripotency: a reasoning engine for interaction networks.

Crowded: Digital Piecework and the Politics of Platform Responsibility in Precarious Times looks as crowdsourcing as a focal point for many of the issues that are raised by the structure of our current information economy: economic value, cultural meaning, and ethics.

Distribution Modeller (temporary name only!) is CEES' end-to-end browser tool that lets the researcher to rapidly import data, supplement that data with environmental info from FetchClimate, specify an arbitrary model by point and click or in code, parameterize the model against the data using Filzbach, make and visualize predictions with a full propagation of parameter uncertainty – then package and share everytihng, in a way that is inspectable, repeatable, and modifiable.

SNAP is a new sequence aligner that is 10-100x faster and simultaneously more accurate than existing tools like BWA, Bowtie2 and SOAP2. It runs on commodity x86 processors, and supports a rich error model that lets it cheaply match reads with more differences from the reference than other tools. SNAP was developed by a team from the UC Berkeley AMP Lab, Microsoft, and UCSF. Binaries are available at http://github.com/downloads/amplab/snap/
The University College London and University of Oxford have recently received funding from the EPSRC Cross-Disciplinary Interfaces Programme (2020 Science: Mathematical and Computational Modelling of Complex Natural Systems) to collaborate with Microsoft Research Cambridge on a programme of research that will involve up to 17 post-doctoral Research Associates over a five year period.

We develop and accelerate better, predictive, conservation science, tools and technologies in areas of societal importance. We aim to provide scientific support for effective environmental solutions for key decision makers, from the boardroom to governments makers. We are committed to leveraging the unique position our group occupies to influence how individuals and nations approach and tackle issues such as natural resource scarcity and biodiversity loss.

While Amazon has already made accessible (via S3) the genomes in the 1000 genome project, there is no accompanying abstraction to pick whatever portion of the vast data (250 Gbytes per sequence) that a biologist or doctor wishes interactively across the network. We would like to do something similar in a storage platform such as Azure, but where access can be done by what we call a Genome Query Language (developed with folks at UCSD).

Data sharing, management, and curation have become critical to scientists as well as private and public agencies that support their work. DataUp makes it easy for scientists and researchers to integrate the archiving, sharing, and publishing of tabular data into scientific workflows.

Species Distribution Modelling (SDM) aims to explain why species occur where they do, and why they do not occur anywhere else. For instance, why does an oak tree not occur further south in hotter and dryer regions, and why it may not occur further north in colder and wetter regions? This sort of information is amongst the most fundamental of all ecological knowledge and is of great societal importance. Distribution data can feed into almost all other biodiversity models, and can inform adaptive

In recent years, computational challenges have become more and more important to infer biologically relevant information from the vast amount of experimental data available to systems biologists. Building on work originally done by Marc Mezard and Riccardo Zecchina in the context of random instances of satisfiability, we are developing various computationally efficient algorithms for problems in systems biology.

Filzbach is a flexible, fast, robust, parameter estimation engine that allows you to parameterize arbitrary, non-linear models, of the kind that are necessary in biological sciences, against multiple, heterogeneous data sets. Filzbach allows for Bayesian parameter estimation, maximum likelihood analysis, priors, latents, hierarchies, error propagation and model selection, often with just a few lines of code.
