We recently published the result of our collaboration with former lab member Lei Zhang in Cell Systems: Network topologies that can achieve dual function of adaptation and noise attenuation. Professor Zhang is currently an Associate Professor at the Beijing International Center for Mathematical Research, for more information visit his English language website.

Congratulations to Suoqin for his co-first author paper in Nature Neuroscience: CA1-projecting subiculum neurons facilitate object-place learning.

Members of the Nie lab recently presented their work in applying Machine and Mathematical Intelligence to biological questions as part of UCI’s Brilliant Future campaign. Congrats to the team and Qing for their contribution to transforming healthcare and wellness!

Congratulates to Qixuan on today’s publication in eLife of her article on the mathematics of hair. UCI News has more on this fascinating work.

Chris Rackauckas gave a workshop at JuliaCon 2017 titled “The Unique Features and Performance of DifferentialEquations.jl”. This workshop was videoed and serves as a tutorial introduction to the JuliaDiffEq ecosystem for scientific modeling.

Congratulations to Tao who passed his PhD defense today. Well done Tao!

Congratulations to Seth who passed his PhD defense today. Well done Seth!

Adam gave an invited talk at the Institute for the Biology of Stem Cells at UC Santa Cruz, hosted by Marc Mangel on “Hematopoietic stem cell niche dynamics, heterogeneity, and life histories”.

Successful PhD defense

Congratulations to Catherine who passed her PhD defense today. Well done Catherine!

Our paper Cell Sorting and Noise-Induced Cell Plasticity Coordinate to Sharpen Boundaries between Gene Expression Domains is published today in PloS Computational Biology.

Congratulations to Qixuan who led the study with co-first author William Holmes.

Today marks the v1.0 release of DifferentialEquations.jl, written by Chris. DifferentialEquations.jl is a high-performance Julia suite of interactive solvers for many types of differential equations using the latest methods. More details about the package here.
