Article: ACM XRDS: The Brownian Wanderlust of Things

The Spring issue of ACM XRDS is here! This issue is centered around digital fabrication, which in many ways highlights the expanded role of computer in today's society. Digital fabrication is not merely about 3D printing knickknacks, rather it enables...

Article: ACM XRDS: The Marvel Comic Book Universe

The Fall issue of ACM XRDS is here! In this issue we write about virtual reality. Among others, you can read about the virtual reality revolution and ways to bring virtual reality home. The issue also discusses how to use your own muscles to achieve...

Article: ISMB 2015: Gene Network Inference via Data Fusion

Our paper at ISMB 2015 addresses a challenging task of inferring gene networks by taking into consideration potentially many data sets. Importantly, these data sets might be nonidentically distributed and can follow any combination of exponential...

Article: Bioinformatics: Gene Network Inference by Fusing Diverse Distributions

Our paper on Gene network inference by fusing data from diverse distributions has been published in Bioinformatics. We will present it at ISMB 2015 in Dublin. In the paper we describe FuseNet, a Markov network formulation that infers networks from a...

Article: J Comp Biol: Network-Guided Matrix Completion

Our recent paper in Journal of Computational Biology introduces an interaction data imputation method called network-guided matrix completion (NG-MC). The core part of NG-MC is low-rank probabilistic matrix completion that incorporates prior knowledge...

Article: ACM XRDS: The Anatomy of a Human Disease Network

The Winter 2014 issue of ACM XRDS is here! This issue is on health informatics, which has received considerable attention both in research and general public in recent years. You can read about the opportunities of social media in health and...

Article: @Stanford University, Department of Computer Science

I am visiting the Department of Computer Science at Stanford University, CA, USA in Summer and Fall 2014. During my stay we will study the interplay between network analysis, data integration and biology. There are many exciting challenges one can...
