Posters and a Talk at ISMB 2018

Several of us recently returned from attending ISMB 2018 in Chicago.

 

Alex Nord presented his work on Mirage, a tool for aligning protein isoforms in a talk, and later a poster. The work will appear in the Proceedings of the ACM-BCB 2018 conference.

Daniel Olson presented his work on ULTRA, a model-based method for labeling repetitive regions of biological sequences. His work will also appear in the ACM-BCB 2018 Proceedings. Genevieve Krause presented rapidly-progressing work on an implementation of a profile HMM for annotating protein-coding DNA containing frameshift-inducing indels. Kaitlin Carey‘s poster described a method for assessing confidence in annotation when multiple related families compete for labeling a sequence. Tim Anderson described steps toward a new FPGA-acceleration approach to profile HMM search. Jack Roddy presented exciting early results for methods to reduce the overextension of sequence alignments into nonhomologous sequence regions.

(After review of the photos of everyone presenting their posters, you can see that they’re mostly doing a great job of following my instructions to talk to people while position your hands as if you’re holding a watermelon! 😄 )
