In view of the challenges of modern biotechnology and medicine, the simulation of large biomolecules in atomic representation with its immense length and time scales of interest remains far beyond the capacity of computer power currently available, at least with respect to a reliable conformational analysis. As a consequence, there is an increasing need for reduced models that still allow to describe the relevant dynamical properties while at the same time being less complex The project is based on the core project of the two groups involved: the construction of conformation dynamics algorithms based on the transfer operator approach. This approach defines a unique framework for (a) the identification of main biomolecular conformations as metastable sets, (b) the characterization of molecular flexibility within a conformation, (c) the computation of transition probabilities between the main conformations, and (d) the detection of the associated transition pathways. The vision of the present project is further development of this approach towards application of larger biomolecules like proteins or DNA segments by means of novel hierarchical models and algorithms and their efficient implementation.

How “web 2.0” technologies and social networking are used by young people outside school compared with their learning experiences in school.

Every year we conduct research to find out how the power of technology is being harnessed to support learning. Find out more about our research on the Becta website: http://www.becta.org.uk/research

Barry Smyth is currently the Director of the CLARITY: Centre for Sensor Web Technologies and holds the Digital Chair of Computer Science in the School of Computer Science and Informatics at University College Dublin. His research interests include personalization, recommender systems, case-based reasoning, machine learning, and information retrieval. Over the past 10 years Barry has secured approximately €2.5m in research funding from a variety of Irish, European, and US funding agencies. During this time he has developed a leading research group in the area of personalization technologies, graduating nearly almost 30 postgraduate research students, including 16 PhDs. Barry has also successfully commercialized the output of his research. He has founded 2 startup companies (ChangingWorlds Ltd and HeyStaks Technologies Ltd) leading to the creation of more than 120 jobs over the past 10 years. Barry is a co-founder of ChangingWorlds Ltd., a leading provider of mobile content discovery solutions, acquired by Amdocs Inc. for m in 2008.
