  • Seminar: Model-based deep embedding for the analysis of single-cell RNA sequencing data

    HEC: 101A: 101A

    Abstract: Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) promises to provide a high resolution of cellular differences. However, the analysis of scRNA-seq data remains a statistical and computational challenge, due to pervasive dropout events that obscure the high dimensional data matrix with pre-vailing ‘false’ zero count observations. Furthermore, subsequent differential expression analysis after clustering incurs the so-called “double use of data" problem, which …

  • Thesis Proposal: Global Spatiotemporal Modeling of the Human Appropriation of Net Primary Production

    BIO: 416

    Human use of the environment has resulted in the depletion of biodiversity and natural resources and has restructured landscapes. Social, economic, and political anthropogenic activities have in particular affected terrestrial vegetation. Human appropriation of net primary production (HANPP) is a measure of the human exploitation of plant resources by the removal and alteration of vegetation from Earth’s surface through harvesting …
