Each year, Mizzou Engineering opens its doors to showcase the great work going on in its labs — work that has tremendous benefit and impact locally and globally.
Mizzou researchers are one of the first to expedite the graphene structure prediction process by applying the same principles that allow computers to learn by example.
Jianlin Cheng’s MULTICOM team finished third overall and first in predicting accuracy of protein structural models at the CASP13 competition in December.
This past spring, faculty representatives from the College of Engineering developed a Faculty Honors Program to adhere to the campus guidelines for awarding faculty fellowships and honors.
MU Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Jianlin Cheng and Professor Amarda Shehu of George Mason University recently landed a three-year, $845,283 grant from the National Science Foundation to support their project, “Guiding Exploration of Protein Structure Spaces with Deep Learning.”
Knowing a protein’s structure structure is vitally important because the 3D structure of a protein defines its function, and greater, more accurate knowledge of these structures could help with breakthroughs in several key areas.
The problem-solving methods and solutions found in computer science are some of reasons students like Debswapna Bhattacharya pursue the discipline. Not only are there numerous opportunities for a successful personal future throughout the world, but also the opportunities for discoveries in the field are infinite.
Jianlin Cheng, associate professor of computer science, and doctoral students Jilong Li and Jie Hou recently developed RNAMiner, a website making it easier for those in the biological sciences to analyze genomic and transcriptomic data.
Eight engineering undergraduates will travel to Jefferson City on March 10 to discuss and explain their research projects to state lawmakers.
For some, the ability to turn personal success into lessons that teach others how to achieve the same success is the most rewarding. Such is the case for two alumni as both start their careers in academia.
