Pozvánka na přednášku Big Image Data in Biology – What Can HPC Do for Us?

Zveme všechny zájemce na přednášku špičkového odborníka v oblasti evoluční vývojové biologie Pavla Tomančáka, PhD z Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG), Drážďany Pavel Tomancak did his PhD at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in the field of developmental genetics. As a post-doc at the University of California in Berkeley, he established image-based genome scale resources for patterns of gene expression. Since 2005 he leads an independent research group at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) in Dresden. His laboratory studies patterns of gene expression during development by combining molecular, imaging and image analysis techniques. Annotation
Most insights into the inner workings of biological systems come from microscopic examination. In recent years we have witnessed a paradigm shift in microscopy technology that enable biologists to probe biological systems with unprecedented resolution in space and time. Modern microscopy techniques are bridging scales from individual molecules to entire organisms. We are for example able to scan entire nervous system, which is a macroscopic structure, using electron microscopy techniques with resolution in nanometer range. Similarly, we can follow development of model organism embryos with cellular resolution in full 3D over periods of days. All this results in truly Big Image Data that were previously not encountered in biological sciences. In order to generate biological insights from this imagery high performance computers are becoming indispensable. I will highlight some outstanding biological projects centered on big microscopy data and discuss how HPC can help in their analysis. Kdy: 25. dubna 2016, 10:30 – 11:15 hod.
