Genome Sequencing for Pathogen Discovery – Joseph DeRisi (UCSF, HHMI)

Published

on

By


For decades, a strange neurological disease has plagued snakes around the world. The snakes tie themselves into knots, exhibit strange behaviors, and eventually die. In this talk, Dr. Joseph DeRisi describes how his lab uncovered the mysterious agent responsible for this disease, which turned out to be an ancient arenavirus.

About the speaker:
Joseph DeRisi, PhD., is a professor at the University of California, San Francisco, chair of the department of Biochemistry and Biophysics and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator. Dr. DeRisi was one of the early pioneers of DNA microarray technology and whole genome expression profiling and is nationally recognized for his efforts to make this technology accessible and freely available. His lab has identified putative disease-causing viruses in a wide variety of animals, including humans. Dr. DeRisi was named a MacArthur fellow in 2004, and was awarded the Heinz Award in 2008 and the John J. Carty Award from the National Academy of Sciences in 2014.

“Algorand: A Better Distributed Ledger,” with Silvio Micali

Published

By



Title: Algorand: A Better Distributed Ledger
Date: 10/13/17
Speaker: Silvio Micali

Abstract
A distributed ledger is a tamperproof sequence of data that can be read and augmented by everyone. Distributed ledgers stand to revolutionize the way a democratic society operates. They secure all kinds of traditional transactions—such as payments, asset transfers, titling—in the exact order in which they occur; and enable totally new transactions—such as cryptocurrencies and smart contracts. They can remove intermediaries and usher in a new paradigm for trust. As currently implemented, however, distributed ledgers cannot achieve their enormous potential.

Algorand is an alternative, democratic, and efficient distributed ledger. Unlike prior ledgers based on “proof of work,” it dispenses with “miners.” Indeed, Algorand requires only a negligible amount of computation. Moreover, its transaction history does not “fork” with overwhelming probability: i.e., Algorand guarantees the finality of all transactions.

Presenter
Silvio Micali
Faculty at MIT and ACM A.M. Turing Award Winner
Silvio Micali recieved his Laurea in Mathematics from the University of Rome, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley. Since 1983, he has been on the faculty of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT.

Silvio’s research interests are cryptography, zero knowledge, pseudo-random generation, secure protocols, mechanism design, and distributed ledgers.

Silvio is the recipient of the ACM A.M. Turing Award (in computer science), the Gödel Prize (in theoretical computer science), and the RSA prize (in cryptography). He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and of the Academia dei Lincei.
