Diamond Waveguides for Photonic Devices
Problem Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) can transmit information for computing using light rather than electricity. Using PICs on chips would allow for faster data transmission rates, lower power consumption, and less energy wasted through thermal dissipation. Diamond is a promising material for PICs due to its optical properties, however, fabrication...

MAJIQ and VOILA: the next generation for sequencing analyses
MAJIQ and Voila are two software packages that together detect, quantify, and visualize local splicing variations (LSV) from RNA-Seq data. Problem Over 90% of human genes undergo alternative splicing, resulting in different gene products, potentially conveying different function. This underlying complexity to gene expression is still not well understood...
