Storage technology is changing rapidly. New hardware promises unprecedently low latency, while traditional disks are becoming increasingly unreliable in an attempt to meet capacity demands. Meanwhile, cloud models, be they fully public, private, or a hybrid of the two, have made storage both more flexible and more fragmented, a trend accentuated by the proliferation of data into mobile clients.
In response to environmental stress, cells undergo widespread
transcriptional changes, in part to divert gene expression from normal cell
growth functions to stress defense. Although many key regulators are well
understood, knowledge of the signaling pathways, and how they vary depending
on the stress, is highly incomplete. In this collaborative project, which
included members of the Gasch, Craven, Coon, and Ansari labs, we developed
an experimental and computational pipeline to infer the sodium chloride
