ling and regulatory pathways. ECE's Ikeda is pursuing the development of a graphical user interface for pathway editing and integration in Cytoscape, while Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) undergrad Smith will help install a wireless network while extending the Ecogrid in Taiwan's Ecological Parks. Smith will also enhancing software of the Collaborative Lake Metabolism Project (http://lakemetabolism.org) that is vital to his proposed research. Smith is mentored by Lin, Arzberger, and Tony Fountain, who directs the Knowledge and Information Discovery Lab within the Data and Knowledge Systems program of the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).
Jared Bell, a Revelle College undergraduate who expects to earn his Bachelor of Science in structural engineering in June of 2005, is also spending the summer in Taiwan. Bell's research centers on Internet-based virtual laboratory testing for earthquake resistance of structures using the National Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) model. He is working for Keh-Chyuan Tsai, director of Taiwan's National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering; NCHC's Fang-Pang Lin; and Chia-Ming Uang, professor and vice-chair of UCSD's Structural Engineering department.
Three additional students are performing research at the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Bioengineering's John Colby, together with CSE's Christopher Kondrick and Duy Nguyen, will work under the direction of David Abramson, a well-respected researcher in software for cyberinfrastructure and a developer of Nimrod/G in Melbourne. Colby, a Revelle College student also majoring in premedical molecular biology, will employ Nimrod and Continuity to study the impact of temporal and spatial distribution of two pacemakers around the heart to understand therapeutic optimizations. Nguyen, who is the first member of his family to attend college, aspires to incorporate a Rocks Page: 1 2 3 4 Related biology news :1
