Yesterday I have found an amazing audio comment on Nature's Arts and Books blog that was discussing a possible influence of music on the development of modern science. Among the many connections we may find between science and music, the one I am going to propose today turns out quite unexpected. I understand that pipeline development is … Continue reading Tune up your pipeline with Luigi, the Python module to manage workflow used in Spotify.
By this post, I will start exploring the possible contributions Google may provide to bioinformatics, a topic I am considering to deepen for a while. The rise of bigdata in biology is causing Big G to show a growing interest in this field, and very soon, the Mountain View giant may grow its investments in Life Sciences. … Continue reading MapReduce: using the Google bigdata algorithm in bioinformatics
Next week, December 1st- 4th, the big names of informatics will be online to discuss about coding and software development. The hack.summit() is an initiative aimed at supporting non- profit coding, and it is promoted by the online consulting service hack.hands(). On their website, you can scroll the list of participants, and the names are … Continue reading Book now for hack.summit(), a virtual conference for developers.
A "Machine Learning" algorithm is defined as an algorithm able to change its structure and functioning according to the data submitted. In other words, a machine learning algorithm is capable to learn from data and be refined after implementation. Nowadays, many structural biology (e.g. psi-pred, jpred), bioinformatics (HMM-based software) and systems biology (network analysis and db comparison) algorithms rely … Continue reading An exceptional youtube playlist to start with machine learning.
Software Carpentry is a volunteer organization founded in 1998, whose mission is to enhance scientists' productivity by teaching them basic computer skills. From January 2012, Software Carpentry joined the Mozilla galaxy, to become part of Mozilla Science Lab in June 2013. The organization provides workshops in several parts of the word and free online lessons. Their … Continue reading Software Carpentry. A great resource to learn scientific computing.
Today I tried out the new version of Ubuntu, the 14.04 LTS stable release "Trusty Tahr". I am still having a look to the whole thing, and I guess that another review on this Ubuntu version would be a pointless addition to the global information entropy. I'd better redirect you on some very interesting reviews … Continue reading UbuntuOne is a goner. But Ubuntu still rocks.
Some old papers are just like the old pictures you get to find if you rummage in the garret during a rainy afternoon. Cluttered in a trunk just to be forgotten, they tell you about days gone by, but sometimes they can reveal facts you just couldn't suspect. In the last decade, the research on … Continue reading Chaos theory and theoretical modeling of Gut Microbiota.
