Upcoming Events

Monday, August 05, 2019 to Friday, August 09, 2019

08:00 AM to 05:00 PM Conference/Symposium - Engineered Biosystems Building (EBB), Children's Healthcare Seminar Room - Summer Data Science Bootcamp
The event will be held on the Georgia Tech campus on August 5-9, 2019. Data science is revolutionizing how scientists and engineers go about their work, but most students have not had much exposure to it. This one-week bootcamp provides an opportunity to get introduced to data management and visualization, data modeling, deep learning, and scientific programming in Python. The bootcamp will consist of morning lectures, followed by hands-on sessions in the afternoon to try out and practice concepts and software tools. The bootcamp is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students in science and engineering who have an introductory-level familiarity with any computer programming language, or MATLAB, or RStudio, etc. The bootcamp is free of charge, but enrollment is capped so students must apply by May 15, 2019. Students from Agnes Scott, Morehouse, Spelman, and Georgia Tech are particularly encouraged to apply. Topics: Computer programming in Python for data science, clustering, numerical linear algebra, classification, regression, deep learning, and domain applications Tools: Python, Jupyter notebooks, GitHub, NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, scikit-learn, and TensorFlow Skills: Python programming, version control, social coding, data handling and visualization, data analysis, data modeling and prediction, and scientific and engineering applications Instructors: Ryan Wade (Blue Horseshoe Solutions), Vetria Byrd (Purdue University), Edmond Chow (Georgia Tech), Xiaoming Huo (Georgia Tech), Eva Dyer (Georgia Tech), Chris DePree (Agnes Scott), and David Sherrill (Georgia Tech) Location: Georgia Tech Campus o Visitor parking available in the W23 Parking Lot, located at 911 State St. NW. Monday: Engineered Biosystems Building (EBB), Children's Healthcare Seminar Room (first floor by food kiosk), 950 Atlantic Dr., Atlanta GA 30332 Tuesday-Friday: Molecular Science and Engineering Building (MoSE), Room G011 (ground floor behind elevators), 901 Atlantic Dr., Atlanta, GA 30332 This bootcamp is sponsored by a National Science Foundation TRIPODS+X: EDU grant to the Data-Driven Alliance (Agnes Scott, Georgia Tech, Morehouse, and Spelman) and the Institute for Data Engineering and Science (IDEaS) at Georgia Tech.

Optical Imaging of Nanoscale Chemical and Biological Processes
The research in the Fang Laboratory aims to open new frontiers in chemical and biological discovery through the development and use of novel optical imaging platforms, which provide sub-diffraction-limited spatial resolution, high angular resolution (for anisotropic imaging probes), excellent detectability, and/or nanometer localization precision for single molecules and nanoparticles. o Rotational Tracking: The knowledge of rotational dynamics in and on live cells remains highly limited due to technical limitations. The Single Particle Orientation and Rotational Tracking (SPORT) techniques have been developed in the Fang Laboratory to acquire accurate measurements of anisotropic plasmonic gold nanorods in complex cellular environments. Rich information in five dimensions, including the x, y, z coordinates and the two orientation angles (azimuthal angle ? and polar angle ? , as defined in the figure) of the probe's transition dipole, can be obtained from SPORT experiments. The SPORT technique is capable of extracting important information (including rotational rates, modes, and directions) on the characteristic rotational dynamics involved in cellular processes, such as adhesion, endocytosis, and transport of functionalized nanoparticles, as may be relevant to drug delivery and viral entry. o Single Molecule Catalysis: Real time imaging of single catalyst active sites in situ enables mechanistic studies on fundamental reaction steps under actual turnover operando conditions; these studies have enormous potential impact in establishing intimate structure-property relationships from which to build better (faster, cleaner, cheaper) catalysts. Our research aims to design catalytic platforms for single molecule imaging and reveal molecular dynamics (including diffusion, adsorption, and chemical conversion, as well as their coupling) on the nanocatalyst surfaces or in the nanoporous structures at the single-molecule level.
