Michael Brent and his team are driven by the conviction that probabilistic and dynamical systems modeling need not be merely a theoretical or descriptive exercise – predictive models can be applied now in ways that impact our daily choice of experiments to carry out and enable a deeper, systems level understanding of how gene regulation interacts with cellular physiology. </p><p>Professor Brent believes that modeling is most useful when it guides experiments in a tight feedback loop. Models of transcriptional regulatory networks have their greatest impact when constructed for the purpose of explaining how specific physiological outcomes are regulated, and synthetic regulatory circuits are most interesting when they are interfaced to meaningful cellular physiology. The drive to apply mathematical and computational methods to complex, biologically meaningful problems has led his team to a number of projects in which molecular experiments are driven by predictive models.<br/></p><h3>Biography</h3><p></p>After completing his PhD in Computer Science at MIT, Professor Brent served as Assistant and Associate Professor of Cognitive Science at the Johns Hopkins University, where his research focused on computational modeling of how children learn language.<div><br/>He brought these interests to Washington University in St. Louis in 1999, where he developed a second research program in computational biology and eventually phased out computational linguistics.

The challenge now is to efficiently aggregate, integrate, and search these data sets to make new discoveries and connections.<div><br/>Jeremy Buhler's research focuses on developing algorithms and tools for large-scale computational analyses of biological sequences. He works to improve and generalize the heuristics at the heart of highly scalable computational tools for genomic, metagenomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic analysis, using ideas from probabilistic and randomized algorithms. These ideas have produced principled strategies to accelerate search in databases of sequences and probabilistic sequence models, as well as pattern discovery challenges such as motif finding.</div><div><br/>Building computational infrastructure for next-generation sequence analyses also presents challenges of hardware and software design. By constructing accelerators for these analyses on parallel computing devices such as field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and graphics processors (GPUs), Professor Buhler exposes and addresses challenges to using these devices effectively. Recent work includes throughput-optimized mappings of dynamic programming recurrences to systolic arrays, design of deadlock-free dataflow applications in the presence of data filtering, and efficient mapping of work ensembles to threads on GPUs for irregular applications such as short-read aligners.​</div><div><h3>Biography​​</h3><p>In 2001, Professor Buhler joined the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis.

His 1989 paper on real-time gain correction and his 1994 paper on real-time scan conversion (with Professor Martin Arthur) were key to the development of many low-cost commercial ultrasonic imaging systems. Professor Richard developed a low-cost, PCI-bus based system based on these techniques in 1995 for prostate localiztion during radiation treatment at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and a second system in 1996 to localize brain tumors during neurosurgery at the Cleveland Clinic as part of the CAMIS (Computer-Assisted Minimally-Invasive Surgery) project.</p><p>The Universal Serial Bus (USB) ultrasound probes developed by Professor Richard, which require only a laptop or tablet to form a complete ultrasonic imaging system, were named by Popular Science Magazine as one of the Best 100 Innovations of 2006. The same year, the International Academy of Science named the USB probes one of the top 10 finalists for their "Technology of the Year Award." With funding from Microsoft Research, Professor Richard combined his USB probes with a Windows Mobile (TM) smartphone to develop the first smartphone-based ultrasound imaging system. The commercial version of this system was the first smartphone-based diagnostic device cleared by the FDA, and it was named by Popular Science as one of the Best 100 Innovations of 2012.</p><p>Professor Richard was awarded a patent on a novel technique for real-time synthetic focus ultrasonic imaging in 2004. He served on the editorial board for Computerized Medical Imaging and Graphics for over twenty years. He is a member of the American Society for Engineering Education and a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.</p><img alt="" src="/Profiles/ResearchImages/Richard_ZAR.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>314-935-4676<br/><a href="mailto:wdr@wustl.edu">wdr@wustl.edu</a><br/>Jolley Hall, Room 538</p>

He is particularly interested in applying computational methods to the understanding of complex human diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and psoriasis, and environmental stress response in agri-economically important plants, such as rice and cassava. In recent years, he has been focusing on three lines of biological research: gene regulation through small noncoding RNAs, transcriptome analysis and genotype-phenotype association.</p> <br/>In Artificial Intelligence, his main focuses are heuristic search, combinatorial optimization and planning. He has made several important contributions to these areas, documented in many papers in top journals (e.g. 11 in Artificial Intelligence) and conferences. Among these important results are two worthwhile to mention. First, he showed that linear-space heuristic search algorithms, including depth-first search and iterative deepening, are asymptotically optimal, so that they are the algorithms of choice for large problems. Moreover, this result also resolved an anomaly of look-ahead search, which has been widely adopted as a model of real-time problem solving. Second, he analyzed phase transitions in combinatorial optimization problems, e.g., the Traveling Salesman Problem and the maximum Satisifiability, showing their easy-difficulty phase transitions, which are in sharp contrast to the easy-hard-easy phase transitions in decision problems. Furthermore, he also developed effective approximation algorithms that exploit phase transitions. In recent years, Professor Zhang has been focusing on Satisifiability-based planning. His joint work with Ruoyun Huang and Yixin Chen on planning won the Outstanding Paper Award of the 2010 National Conference on AI.​<h3>Biography</h3><p>After spending several years at Information Sciences Institute, University of Southern California, Professor Zhang joined the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis in 2000.
