Changes in gene dosage are a major driver of cancer, known to be caused by a finite, but increasingly well annotated, repertoire of mutational mechanisms. This can potentially generate correlated copy-number alterations across hundreds of linked genes, as exemplified by the 2% of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) with recurrent amplification of… (More)
The team developing the new version of the Computational Science Education Reference Desk (CSERD) has recognized the need for, and implemented, a more flexible and interactive system for finding resources using a combination of browsing and searching.
The Blue Waters Student Internship Program (BWSIP), a year-long program funded for three years by the National Science Foundation, motivates and trains the next generation of supercomputing researchers. A community engagement partnership of the Blue Waters Petascale Computing Facility at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and Shodor,… (More)
The poster traces ongoing efforts to develop and refine a metadata schema for the Computational Science Education Reference Desk (CSERD). Design and development is informed by evolving metadata standards for educational resources, usability studies, audience analysis, and interoperability guidelines for National Science Digital Library (NSDL), NSDL Metadata… (More)
