        Monte Carlo Simulation for Next Generation Source and Channel Coding on OSG Connect 20m
        Lossy source coding is an efficient data compression technique that aims to minimize the distortion in the reconstructed sequence. Our research involves the investigation of the distortion performance of state-of-the art protograph-based SC-LDGM codes. We show that performance close to Shannon's optimal rate-distortion limits can be achieved with an efficient windowed encoding (WE) algorithm that takes advantage of the convolutional structure of the SC-LDGM codes. The idea is numerically verified by running extensive and highly parallelizable Monte Carlo simulation using distributed high throughput computing, OSG connect

        Effects of Spatial Diffusion on a Model for Prebiotic Evolution 20m
        In previous work (Physical Review E 89, 022725 (2014)), a Kauffman-like model for prebiotic evolution was used to explore the effects of requiring that the final steady states generated be out of chemical equilibrium. That constraint, consistent with intuitive ideas of the meaning of 'lifelike', had a significant impact on the probability of the appearance of lifelike states in the model. The model assumed that the constituent 'molecules' were in a 'well-mixed' reactor so that effects of spatial diffusion played no role. I will review that earlier work and describe our present studies in which spatial heterogeneity and spatial diffusion are introduced. The competition between chemical reaction and diffusion leads to various kinds of nonequilibrium steady states, some spatially equilibrated but out of chemical equilibrium, some chemically equilibrated but out of spatial equilibrium and still others, perhaps the most lifelike, which are not equilibrated in either way but are in dynamic steady states far from equilibrium. Using data from simulations that were performed on the Open Science Grid, I will present estimated probabilities of the generation of these various kinds of states as a function of the two parameters of the model (Physical Review E 94 (4), 042424 (2016)).

        Using Python and Fabric for analyzing brain signals on OSG Connect 20m
        https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1s5n-ObLv5In3lVpqUJoUqO7RZDEMf5WjXzYmJJGdraA/edit?usp=sharing As data collection systems are augmented, more individual labs require high-throughput computing in order to process all of their data. In these labs, researchers are continuously developing their own analytics methods in scripting languages. These facts are especially true in the neuroscience community, in which brain recordings often contain several hundred channels, sampled at over 1000Hz, for sometimes weeks at a time. New methodology for extracting information from these signals are being developed in Python due to its wide variety of packages, great documentation, and open-source culture. This presentation will cover an example application of OSG to parallelize analysis of multiple neural signals using both public and private libraries and transferring output. It will also cover the Python package Fabric to automate the process of logging into and running commands on the OSG submit server. This tutorial's release led to an increase in OSG connect users interested in using Python, which will help to improve the support for Python usage on OSG connect.

        A large-scale metagenomic analysis using OSG 20m
        t is well known that exosomes play an important role in cell-to-cell communication by transferring all types of molecules from donor cells to recipient cells. The objective of this study was to assess the microbial mRNA cargos in exosomes of one type of body fluids. To identify the possible microbial species in the samples, we conducted a large-scale metagenomic analysis by using the Open Science Grid (OSG) and 4,742 microbial genomes were assessed on each of 6 samples. The result shows that, across all samples, microbial sequences consistently account for a large percentage of the mRNAs in exosomes. Moreover, through the highly efficient system of OSG, the tasks of ~81K CPU hours were completed in 17 days.

        Cancer Computer is a non-profit with a goal to create a computing platform, as a service, for cancer researchers. In just under 2 years since founding, we've received enough donations, to deploy a modest cluster, supporting OSG, the Galaxy Project, researchers in private virtual environments, and scavenging spare CPU and GPU cycles for public projects such as Rosetta and Folding at Home, and the World Community Grid. We've recently hired an ex-fortune 500 VP as our Executive Director, a professional fundraiser has offered to volunteer time to us, and we are about to sign an agreement, with a Federal Canadian Agency, to secure all of their evergreened computing, networking, and storage hardware, for several years.

        fsurf: an OSG FreeSurfer execution service 20m
        FreeSurfer is a software suite for processing and analyzing human MRI images. Freesurfer takes several hours to process a typical MRI scan (~40MB in size) and generates about 300MB of results. This makes it a good fit for computation on OSG. We present FSurf, a computational service that allows users to easily run typical FreeSurfer workflows on OSG.

        Evolving strategies for life in an uncertain world 20m
        Molecular processes are fundamentally stochastic. Randomness is the rule in transcription, translation, cell-to-cell variation in protein levels, and heterogeneity in interactions. One common assumption is that such phenotypic variation is simply noise, and scientists often appeal to the statistics of large numbers when developing deterministic theories, ignoring any potentially adaptive role of stochasticity. Yet evidence is accumulating that phenotypic variance constitutes an evolutionary driving force across diverse biological processes, including the adaptive immune system, the development of cancerous neoplasms, and the persistence of pathogens under drug pressure. All these systems are fundamentally characterized by high levels of environmental change and uncertainty: either persistent, global, temporal fluctuations in selection pressure, or local, micro-environmental and spatially-defined selective forces. Can evolution prepare organisms for this environmental stochasticity? I will talk about the genetic signatures of this commonplace yet unpredictable environmental variation. I will particularly focus on exploring the evolutionary advantage of alleles that confer the ability to express a range of phenotypes, a type of evolutionary bet-hedging that need not confer a direct benefit to a single individual, but can increase the chance of long-term survival of a lineage. I will also discuss implications of these results in the context of therapies designed to eradicate populations of pathogens or aberrant cellular lineages.

        Large-Scale Genomics Experiments Enabled by OSG Connect Resources 20m
        Several petabytes of raw DNA sequencing data have been deposited into public databases in recent years, introducing novel opportunities for mining useful biological information. The Open Science Grid (OSG) provides hardware and software infrastructure that have enabled us to address complex biological questions at a larger scale than previously possible with our local HPC resources at Clemson. With the help of the OSG support staff, we have developed two functional Pegasus workflows for processing and interpreting large genomic datasets. From software compilation to workflow optimization, we have encountered technical challenges that were quickly eased by the dedicated support of the OSG staff. The successes and challenges that we have encountered throughout this process will be discussed.
