I have been asked to give a talk at the Workshop on Automated Algorithm Design being held at the Toyota Technical Institute at Chicago from August 7th to the 9th. I will be speaking about our work related to applying parameter advising to reference-based transcript assembly (see Publications).
While in Chicago, I will also attend the Workshop on Learning-Based Algorithms also being held at TTIC from August 12th to the 14th.

Our recent work on universal k-mer sets has been accepted as a paper to The 10th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB) in September, being held in Niagara Falls, NY. The work titled “Practical universal k-mer sets for minimizer schemes” is a collaboration with our summer iBRIC student from 2017 Fiyin Gbosibo, Carl Kingsford, and Guillaume Marçais. The preprint is now available (see Publications).

I have been invited to give a talk at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Biological Data Science meeting (#biodata18) November 7-10. My talk is preliminarily titled “Building an automated bioinformatician—More accurate, large-scale genomic discovery using parameter advising”.

I will be giving a talk at the StringBio Workshop at UCF at the end of October. The workshop runs from the 25th to the 27th. I am scheduled to talk on the 26th in the afternoon. I am planning to talk about multiple sequence alignment accuracy estimation using Facet in the context of parameter advising. My slides are available here.
My colleague Guillaume Marçais is also speaking at the meeting, likely about methods related to minimizer ordering (some of which is joint with myself, Carl Kingsford, and others).
My work on Parameter Advising for transcript assembly has been accepted for an oral presentation at the European Student Council Symposium in Athens, Greece. In addition I will be attending ECCB in September to present a poster at the main meeting.
