Ploidy change as a rapid mechanism of adaptation
ID: 340087
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2019-12-31
Fungi are particularly challenging pathogens; because they and their human hosts are eukaryotes. We will study how new traits such as drugR arise rapidly using Candida albicans, the most prevalent fungal pathogen of humans. The work explores the ground-breaking concept that a...

Ultracold Quantum Matter
[PROJECT] UQUAM - Ultracold Quantum Matter
ID: 319278
Start date: 2013-07-01, End date: 2019-06-30
Quantum mechanics is the basis of our understanding of the microscopic world. It is also central to the collective behaviour of matter at low temperatures, leading to unique properties that defy our classical intuition. The comprehension of such ‘quantum matter’ and the abili...

Investigating Directed Information
[PROJECT] DIRECTEDINFO - Investigating Directed Information
ID: 337752
Start date: 2013-08-01, End date: 2019-07-31
This research investigates a new measure that arises in information theory called directed information. Recent advances, including our preliminary results, shows that directed information arises in communication as the maximum rate that can be transmitted reliably in channels...

Learning to read the code of large neural populations
ID: 311238
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-10-31
Information is represented and transmitted in the brain by the joint activity of large groups of neurons. Understanding how information is “written” in these population patterns, and how it is read and processed, is a fundamental question in neuroscience. Yet, because of the ...

Predicting Properties of Large Heterogeneous Systems with Optimally-Tuned Range-Separated Hybrid Functionals
ID: 278380
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
I propose to develop a broadly applicable, quantitatively reliable, computationally simple approach to the study of large heterogeneous systems, and to apply it to important problems in molecular and organic electronics and photovoltaics. This will be based on a radically dif...

Deep Packet Inspection to Next Generation Network Devices
ID: 259085
Start date: 2010-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
Deep packet inspection (DPI) lies at the core of contemporary Network Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems and Web Application Firewall. DPI aims to identify various malware (including spam and viruses), by inspecting both the header and the payload of each packet and compa...

Flight Algorithms for Disaggregated Space Architectures
ID: 278231
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Standard spacecraft designs comprise modules assembled in a single monolithic structure. When unexpected situations occur, the spacecraft are unable to adequately respond, and significant functional and financial losses are unavoidable. For instance, if the payload of a space...

Proportionality in Public Policy: 
Towards a Better Balance between Interests and Rights in Decision-Making
ID: 324182
Start date: 2013-08-01, End date: 2019-07-31
This research project seeks to improve the quality and consistency of policy decisions by offering a novel approach to the study and practice of proportionality, one of the most important meta-constitutional principles for adjudicating among competing values. Although proport...

An interdisciplinary genome-wide study of posttranscriptional regulation by small RNAs: from individual interactions to networks and evolution
ID: 322920
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
Deciphering the interactions within and between the three major components of living organisms, DNA, RNA and Protein, is at the heart of biological research. New large-scale experimental methods have dramatically advanced genome-wide detection of protein-protein, protein-DNA,...

Information-optimal machine learning
ID: 336078
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2018-09-30
The statistical and computational theory of learning is one of the prime achievements of computer science and engineering. This is evident both in terms of mathematical elegance of capturing intuitive notions rigorously as well as in terms of practical applicability: machine ...
