Coskun, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, California Institute of Technology http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220417299?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220417299?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Monday, Mar 30

Abstract:

Single-cell analysis of gene expression in biological systems holds great promise for revealing the heterogeneity and spatial context in the molecular states of cellular populations. This information, however, has been inadequately characterized by the traditional genome-wide DNA/RNA sequencing techniques due to the averaging of many cells. Despite their unique advantages, current single-cell methods, including single-molecule fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH), have been limited to the screening of only a few genes at a time. Multiplexing large number of genes in single cells is necessary, especially in systems biology, to explore previously unanswered biological questions due to the lack of powerful sequencing tools with single cell sensitivity. These critical problems, among many others, include the roles of interacting genes, stochasticity in transcription, and malignant activation of genes that control cellular decisions in development. Therefore, there is an unmet demand in biology and medicine for high-throughput single-cell genomics technologies that can transform our systems level understanding of the cellular life in greater detail. Such single-cell studies will revolutionize the cell-based diagnostic and therapeutic methods that have significant potential to screen and correct diseases such as cancer.

Motivated by these, in this talk I will introduce a computational single molecule barcoding strategy that can achieve simultaneous detection of more than hundred mRNA species in single cells of complex biological samples. This novel RNA sequencing technology, termed as SeqFISH, utilizes sequential hybridizations and single-molecule FISH to quantify gene expression in individual cells. Using SeqFISH, in principle, we can profile the entire transcriptome (about 60,000 transcripts), making it a highly promising technique for next-generation single-cell transcriptomics. SeqFISH, with its absolute quantitation capability, provides an order of magnitude higher sequencing throughput (more than 1,000 cells per hour) compared to the existing single-cell RNA-seq approaches without the need for isolation of the cells from tissue samples. I will demonstrate an application of this SeqFISH method in developmental cell biology to explore regulatory networks in the mouse immune system. These SeqFISH measurements reveal previously unknown population heterogeneity in the developing T-cells from blood stem cells, yielding the subsets of cells that are coordinated by master coregulated genes. The cell-to-cell variability in the immune cells will provide insights into how cells obtain distinct cell fates in multicellular organisms. In the latter part of my talk, I will discuss technological advancements in the SeqFISH technique to enable quantification of “high-density” transcripts by processing the SeqFISH data based on a statistical barcoding approach. I will illustrate the use of statistical SeqFISH method in the determination of single-cell stoichiometry of highly expressed regulators (more than 1,000 copies per cell) in the ribosomal translational machinery within mammalian cells. These analyses will help explain how specialized ribosomes contribute to cellular diversity. The presented SeqFISH results will shed light onto the formation of “cell identity” in development through the combinatorial analysis of regulators both in transcriptional and translational control from a common genome.

Whos Afraid of Chuck and George? http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416770?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416770?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Friday, Feb 13 - Saturday, Apr 4 Location: CentralTrak.

Opening Reception: Friday, Feb 13, 8 - 10 pm  

A visual arts roast of the artists duo Brian Jones and Brian Scott

“The Brians” as they are collectively known by the Dallas arts community have been living, loving and working together for the past 25 years.  Though they each make art works of their own, when they work collaboratively, they use the moniker “Chuck & George”.  As Chuck & George, Brian Jones and Brian Scott are alternately the protagonists and antagonists in a campy universe of their own creation.  The artists present themselves as sexy and grotesque caricatures sharing real and fabricated misadventures.  Chuck & George are a quirky and unflattering version of the Romantic Comedy.

Individually and separately, Brian Jones and Brian Scott are incredible artists.  They live, breathe and sleep art/music/film and exude a joy de vivre.  And they have legendary Halloween parties.  Their home is a funky nest that they’ve assembled from all things wonderful and wacky, mixing naughty tchotchkes with fine art within the hand-painted walls and furniture.

Recognizing the universally adored “Brians” as enormous and unique talents, curator and Director of CentralTrak Heyd Fontenot had the idea of assembling their friends for an homage exhibition.  Nearly a hundred artists were given the task of immortalizing Chuck & George.  And most have answered the call.  So, this Spring CentralTrak will host the group exhibition “Who’s Afraid of Chuck & George?” (Title borrowed from the Edward Albee play, about another alternative marriage)

SUDARIUM by Reinhold Engberding http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416857?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416857?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Saturday, Mar 7 - Saturday, Apr 4 Location: CentralTrak.

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7, 8 - 10 pm  

CentralTrak is pleased to present “SUDARIUM” by Reinhold Engberding.  A past CentralTrak resident, Engberding's installation is the continuation of a series of image "interviews" with the same title, which he started in 2006. Sudarium is the Latin expression for a special textile relic, one that has been used to wipe sweat, or in an intimate fashion.

These 144 drawings are painted with ink on used bed sheets.  Each unique ink drawing was sourced from the Internet; including porn websites, news sources with reports about the revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as, semi-official U.S. law enforcement websites. The images utilized from these sources are mug shots of men, all viewed with the same question from the sonless Engberding: Is that my son?  

A project of self-discovery, the artist's feelings transform these static web images into self-portrait transformations as Engberding contemplates the father-son-relationship.  As the artist reflects, “bed sheet(s) take (on) tears, sweat and other body fluids and in this respect it’s predestined for this series of portraits."  These images float on the walls looking down on the observer.  Suddenly the observer becomes the observed.

Bio

Reinhold Engberding is a German artist. He studied landscape architecture and fine arts in Kassel, Kiel and The Hague, and has lived and worked in Hamburg since 1982.  Awarded multiple national and international grants to fund his practice, he has been working abroad in Thailand, Switzerland, Norway, the Netherlands and consistently in the U.S., partially connected with a lectureship. He has had several solo and duo shows and has taken part in group shows in Germany and abroad.

Engberding is primarily a sculptor, an object maker, and is concerned with installation works.  Although drawing and painting have not been his chosen medium for quite some time now he is concerned with images of young men, whom he questions whether they could possibly be his sons. Is that my son? is the overarching title of all these series so far. His work involves the topics of identity and intimacy, privacy, longing and desire.

Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science presents

2015 Spring II Clubs - 03/21 - 05/10/2015  (8 sessions)

Are you worried that whole day workshops/camps cover too much content and your children may be overwhelmed? You prefer us to cover the content over several weeks? Do you think it is better to assimilate and build expertise bit slowly? Are you worried that your child may forget the programming skills (s)he learned in Summer? We got you covered with Programming Clubs! Each club runs for 9 weeks and meets in the weekends at UT Dallas campus.

 

In each session, we typically teach actively or work through hands-on examples during the first hour, let the participants work through another example with instructor’s help during the second hour, and the students can do the homework problem during the third hour or leave early and complete it at home. New concepts will be introduced in every session.

 

Visit utd.edu/k12/directions for directions to reach ECSS building in UT Dallas campus.

Ok, but what if you live far away  & cannot visit the campus every weekend? No worries! We have a solution for you even if you live in the other side of the world -  Programming eClubs! With weekly video lectures & assignments, eClubs are as good as on-campus clubs. Our eClubs are rigorous and the participants should plan to spend several hours every week to complete the weekly assignments. Participants can also discuss the weekly material/assignments with fellow students within online discussion forums, but it is optional & discussions will not count towards grade. These online courses will be run through coursesites.com, a state-of-the-art Learning Management System environment provided by Blackboard Inc. Web based tutoring using Google Hangout or Webex is included in the registration fee. Deep-discounted fee is available to participants from other countries who may not be be able to afford regular price. With economy pricing, tutoring support will be provided only by email.
