Mainframe Internship Program - Summer 2018

The mainframe environment hosts some of the most critical applications for the State of Wisconsin. Some of these vital applications include Kids Information Data system (KIDS) which administers child support, Client Assistance for Reemployment and Economic Support (CARES) which administers welfare to work programs, and the Department of Transportation’s Registration and Titling for the state’s drivers licensing and automobile registration. These applications require a highly available platform capable of processing large amounts of data with sub-second response times.

Characterization of the proteinaceous organic matrix associated with carbonate mineral formed in the marine fish intestine

Marine fish live in a hyperosmotic environment and therefore must constantly counteract passive water loss and ion gain. To remain hydrated, marine teleosts (bony fish) must extract water from the only external water source available – seawater. Processing of imbibed seawater is completed in the highly specialized gastrointestinal tract, where inorganic CaCO3 is precipitated in the intestine, lowering luminal osmotic pressure, and aiding in fluid absorption.

[pl-seminar] Synthesizing Proofs of Differential Privacy

Differential privacy has emerged as a promising probabilistic formulation of privacy, generating intense interest within academia and industry. We present a push-button, automated technique for verifying ϵ-differential privacy of sophisticated randomized algorithms. We make several conceptual, algorithmic, and practical contributions: (i) Inspired by the recent advances on approximate couplings and randomness alignment, we

Is this Data Science? Adventures in Metagenomic Data Analysis

High-throughput sequencing of microbial communities allows researchers to characterize associations between the host microbiome and health status, detect pathogens, and identify the interplay of an organism’s microbiome with the built environment. Recent highlights include work on the specificity of the human skin microbiome, the diversity in the ocean microbiome, and a catalogue of the global virome. Effective data analysis tools and appropriate statistical models for this type of data are vital to derive and communicate actionable insights from these experiments.

Developing and Applying Novel Computational Methods to Understanding Metabolomic Data Sets in Autism Spectrum Disorder

Stemina Biomarker Discovery through its neurological disorders division, NeuroPointDX, is conducting the largest clinical study of the metabolism with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) ever conducted. ASD is highly heterogeneous syndrome which has never before been subtyped based on metabolism. The 1,000 subject Children’s Autism Metabolome Project (CAMP study) is designed to validate a panel of metabolic subtypes of ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders to allow earlier diagnosis and more precise treatment based on the child’s metabolism.
