Standard binding free energies are frequently sought in drug design. According to implicit ligand theory, standard binding free energies can be determined from binding potential of mean force (PMF) calculations from different receptor structures. Binding PMFs are a special type of binding free energy in which the receptor is rigid. The purpose of this project is to develop methods for estimating binding PMFs.

Project Description: Glass-forming liquids exhibit dramatical slowdown upon cooling, which may be controlled by the growing amorphous order that emerges due to the rarefaction of metastable states in the rugged free-energy landscape. The amorphous order is well captured by point-to-set correlations, and their measurements are indispensable in testing ideas surrounding this new order parameter. To attain good statistics on point-to-set observables, however, requires a huge number of independent simulations. Exploration of many parameter ranges -- such as temperature or confinement parameters -- further increases the need for parallel computing. The high throughout computing thus provides an ideal tool for investigating the notion of the growing amorphous order in glassy systems.

Project Description: The molecular machines associated with biological membranes are particularly remarkable. Membrane-associated proteins play an essential role in controlling the bidirectional flow of material and information, and as such, they are truly devices able to accomplish complex tasks. These include ion channels, transporters, pumps, receptors, kinases, and phosphatases.
These proteins, like any machine, need to change shape and visit many conformational states to perform their function. Our project is aimed at gaining a deep mechanistic perspective of such protein function, linking structure to dynamics, by characterizing the free energy landscape that governs the key functional motions.

Porject Description: Centaurs are icy objects in the outer solar system whose orbits cross those of the giant planets. It is thought that most Centaurs originate from the solar system's Kuiper Belt, a reservoir of icy bodies orbiting just beyond Neptune. However, a few Centaurs with very large orbital inclinations and/or mean orbital distances cannot be well-explained with a Kuiper Belt origin. Alternatively, it has been proposed that these outlier Cenaturs may come from the Oort Cloud, a spherical halo of icy objects that extends over halfway to the nearest star. In this project we will simulate the production of Centaurs from the Oort Cloud using numerical orbital integrations. Following this, we will run our simulated orbits/objects through a sky survey simulator to compare our simulated "detections" with the real sample of known objects. Thus, we will be able to evaluate whether the Oort Cloud is a potential source of Centaurs with extreme orbits.

Project Description: Design and control of exoskeletons (and prostheses) thus far has been primarily carried out following heuristic methods and exhaustive experimental (design and test) procedures. This approach significantly slows down design iterations and increases project costs. A predictive simulation framework for combined human and device dynamics is a valuable tool that can significantly accelerate optimal device and controller design.

We are building predictive models of combined muscuoloskeletal and exoskeleton dynamics for walking, where design parameters for the exoskeleton (such as actuation torque profiles) and various objective functions (such as metabolic cost) can be optimized simultaneously.

Telephone Number: (608) 263-5651
Project Description: Our research is primarily focused on the transmission and evolution of two zoonotic pathogens, enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) and Salmonella. These pathogens reside in the intestinal tracts of animal hosts where they encounter diverse microbial communities, fluctuating nutrient levels, and myriad host factors. Transmission between hosts requires these pathogens to survive varied environmental conditions. The general stress protection system (regulated by the alternative sigma factor, ?s) is known to play a central role in environmental persistence and transmission. Acid and desiccation tolerance are two transmission-associated phenotypes that are dependent upon ?s -regulated genes. We are also investigating the role of prophage in fitness. EHEC harbor multiple lambda-like prophage and cryptic phage remnants in their genome that facilitate genomic rearrangements, gene duplications, and deletions by homologous recombination.

We are investigating how these phage-mediated genomic rearrangements influence the persistence of EHEC in its bovine host and the environment. The goals of our research are to use results from these fundamental studies in the development of strategies to reduce pathogen transmission.

Project Description: Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) are viewed as ancient retroviral infections in vertebrate genomes and are commonly referred to as viral fossils, accounting for approximately 8% of the human genome. In order to increase our understanding of these viruses in host genomes, I am developing more complex models that describe the evolution of ERVs in host genomes. Specifically, I am interested in understanding evolutionary patterns of ERVs that have intact genes and are theoretically able to re-infect when
compared to those that lost this ability.

Telephone Number: 9704953209
Project Description: Missing data and genotyping errors are common features of microsatellite data sets used to infer the genetic structure of natural populations. We used simulated data to quantify the effect of these data aberrations on the accuracy of population structure inference. Data sets were simulated under the coalescent and ranged from panmictic to highly subdivided with complex, randomly generated, population histories. Models describing the characteristic patterns of missing data and genotyping error in real microsatellite data sets were developed, and used to modify the simulated data sets. Performance of an ordination, a tree based, and a model based Bayesian method of population structure inference was evaluated before and after data set modifications. The ability to recover correct population clusters decreased as missing data increased. The rate of decrease was similar among analytical procedures, thus no single analytical approach was preferable when
faced with incomplete data. Researchers should expect to retrieve 3-4% fewer correct clusters for every 1% of a data matrix made up of missing data using these methods. For every 1% of a matrix that contained erroneous genotypes, approximately 1-2% fewer correct clusters were recovered using ordination and tree based methods. A Bayesian procedure that minimizes the deviation from Hardy Weinberg equilibrium in order to assign individuals to clusters performed better as genotyping error increased. We attribute this surprising result to the inbreeding like nature of microsatellite genotyping error, and recommend the use of related analytical methods that explicitly account for inbreeding, as a means to mitigate the effect of genotyping error.

Project Description: Little is known about the evolutionary pathways enabling a protein to change its function to changing environmental needs, especially in regards to metabolism and toxicity. Evolution simulations that explicitly model the three-dimensional interaction of mutated proteins with their targets is a new approach that complements the ongoing explosion of directed evolution experiments. In this project, the evolutionary dynamics of a lattice representation of antibiotic resistance protein (beta lactamase) is studied by enhanced-sampling folding-binding simulations for an initial protein undergoing selection-dependent mutation to bind a new antibiotic. The goals of this work are to understand the fundamental physical bottlenecks and dynamical behavior of protein evolution. Important questions include the extent of dominant pathways (convergent evolution) and phase transitions in evolutionary rates (punctuated equilibrium). These principals and their structural underpinnings can also be used to inform rational design of antibiotics that exploit bottlenecks in pathogen mutational response.

EvoTheory Project Name: Linkage disequilibrium's contribution to the maintenance of sexual reproduction

PI Name: Christina Burch
PI Email: cburch@bio.unc.edu
Organization: University of North Carolina
Department: Biology

Project Contact: Amanda Whitlock
Project Description: Though sexual reproduction is nearly ubiquitous in nature, its costs are substantial. Foremost among these costs are the twofold cost of males and the cost of destroying successful genetic associations. Understanding the paradox of the persistence of sex despite these detriments is a central question in evolutionary theory. In order to persist regardless of these disadvantages, the benefits of sexual reproduction must be substantial - offspring of sexual reproduction must have at least twice the fitness of asexual clones. The most generalizable hypotheses addressing the benefits of sex propose that genetic drift increases linkage disequilibrium, creating a surfeit of genomes with intermediate fitness. Sexual recombination eliminates linkage disequilibrium, thereby increasing genetic variation for fitness and improving the efficiency of natural selection. However, previous research using this framework has failed to address the biological reality of interactions between genes. Because the cost of destroying beneficial genetic interactions is one of the major costs of sex, this cannot be overlooked. In this work, I use a computational gene network model in which genes interact and genetic interactions evolve to investigate the hypothesis that linkage disequilibrium decreases the fitness and adaptability of asexual populations. I test this both by evolving artificial organisms in conditions that will increase linkage disequilibrium, and by evolving them in an environment with a shifting optimum, which will make linkage disequilibrium more costly.

I am running a python script that runs populations of artificial gene networks (numerical matrices) through repeated rounds (on the order of 10s of thousands) of mutation, selection and reproduction, analyzing the evolutionary dynamics of these populations, and storing the data generated by this in text files.

Project Description: The dynamics and static properties of glassy systems can be studied in great detail by simple model systems, either those on a lattice or those consisting of mixtures of spherical particles. In order to do that, one can use any many techniques generally under the umbrella of Monte Carlo Sampling or Molecular Dynamics. In order to get detailed properties, is is often advantageous or necessary to run a large number of independent simulations, and to calculate properties averaged over these simulations. It may also be necessary to study these systems with a range of parameter values, e.g. temperature or system size.

Project Description: My research focuses on detecting patterns in physiological data of patients in an Intensive Care Unit setting, with the aim of constructing an early warning system. The approach I am taking includes machine learning algorithms such as Artificial Neural Networks, Hidden Markov Models, and Support Vector Machines. I presently have limited computational resources for which to conduct this research. The data I am using for training and validation is both static and time based information on 32,000 patients and includes approximately 30GB of raw data. Additionally I have extremely high resolution data on 2,600 patient. The search-space is prohibitively large for a single computer and even some of the smaller clusters.

I am employing an optimization methodology which allows for a differential evolution approach to incrementally improve a structurally adaptive model. The methodology allows for parallel programming which is of course a necessity for distributed computing.

IceCube is the world's largest neutrino detector. It is located at the South Pole and includes a cubic kilometer of instrumented ice. IceCube searches for neutrinos from the most violent astrophysical sources: events like exploding stars, gamma ray bursts, and cataclysmic phenomena involving black holes and neutron stars. The IceCube telescope is a powerful tool to search for dark matter, and could reveal the new physical processes associated with the enigmatic origin of the highest energy particles in nature. In addition, exploring the background of neutrinos produced in the atmosphere, IceCube studies the neutrinos themselves; their energies far exceed those produced by accelerator beams.

Project Description: We study how interactions between plants and their insect herbivores lead to the evolution of plant defenses, including plant's chemical defenses. In order to identify some of the many unknown compounds we have isolated via LC-MS from the tropical tree genus Inga (Fabaceae), we use in silico fragmentation to predict the ms/ms spectra for a given chemical structure using Competitive Fragmentation Modeling for Metabolite Identification (CFM-ID) (http://cfmid.wishartlab.com). This allows us to match observed ms/ms spectra with a theoretical library of known and predicted chemical structures.

Project Description: In educational assessment, several questions must be answered when constructing a test, such as "How many items are necessary for adequate knowledge measurement precision?", "How many field-test students are needed to adequately calibrate model parameters?", or "Which computerized adaptive testing (CAT) algorithm performs best?" For complex non-linear models, these questions are typically approached by simulation: Model parameters are calibrated (as if unknown) from simulated student item responses, or the emergent properties of particular CAT algorithms are investigated with a large number of simulated test takers. Since the design space grows quickly, many simulations are necessary to understand general trends.

Simulations throughout the test design space can be run independently, requiring little coordination between cores. Computations generally do not have high memory requirements or unusual library/code dependencies, and computations can be recovered from checkpoints easily. The large number of simulations suggests parallel computing, but the independence allows an asynchronous, distributed environment, such as OSG.

These brain rhythms have been hypothesized to underlie functional communication between different brain regions, but the mechanism by which it does this is not clear. Additionally, it is not clear from a biophysical standpoint how these oscillations are generated. Our lab studies both noninvasive and clinical recordings from human subjects and patients in order to better understand these rhythms of the brain. For example, the project contact's personal research investigates the variations in the waveform shape of neural oscillations. Why are some oscillations nonsinusoidal (e.g. sawtooth), how does this impact neural communication, and how does this relate to high-level behaviors?

These structures bend the trajectories of Cosmic Microwave Background photons through gravitational lensing, distorting its primordial polarization and converting divergent polarization patterns (E-modes) into curled polarization patterns (B-Modes). Imaging the lensing-generated B-modes, the POLARBEAR telescope will be able to shed light on all the components of the Universe influencing structure formation, such as neutrino mass and dark energy.

Project Description: The goal of this research is to develop a computational tool that can uncover the pathway and the transition states that exist when a molecule changes conformation or when it chemically changes. In many such circumstances, a process must overcome an energy barrier before proceeding to completion. If the size of the barrier is large compared to the available thermal energy, a process must rely on the occurrence of one or more rare events. For such circumstances, one would like to understand the reaction pathways so as to improve yields, or as in the case of protein folding, to understand the intermediate states. Many simple processes have been explored using theoretical tools such as molecular dynamics, where the movements of individual atoms are calculated. However, when the barrier is large, crossing the relevant barrier is indeed a very rare event. Although computer speeds have been doubling every 18 months (a consequence of Moore's law), the exponentially long waiting times necessary for barrier hopping pushes the required computational effort out of the feasibility range for all but the simplest models. To explore these barrier-limited processes, we are developing a novel computational technique to sample the paths themselves in a thermodynamically significant manner.

If a change occurs early in evolution, does it become easier or harder to revert the change as time proceeds? We intend to explore these ideas in the context of protein evolution, by simulating sequence evolution under purifying selection and then systematically permuting the order of amino-acid substitutions.

Field of Science: Economics
Project Description: The Center for Robust Decision Making on Climate and Energy Policy conducts research in four main areas:

* Improving the fidelity of models used to forecast the impact of policies on future economic and climatic conditions. Many of the most decision-relevant aspects of climate and energy policy - for example, climate impacts and technological advances - are poorly or not at all represented in current policy analysis tools. The Center will build representations of the most important processes and increase model detail and resolution.
* Quantifying sensitivities and uncertainties in the parameters, processes, and impacts in models. RDCEP will develop methods to characterize the dependence of model output on input, parameter, and model uncertainty; incorporate these uncertainties in models; and study how to communicate probabilistic model output to decision makers.
* Identifying robust decisions in the face of uncertainty. The best policy is not necessarily that which produces the maximum return if all assumptions made are borne out, but the one that balances return and risk in the face of many uncertainties. The Center will develop models to identify robust strategies that perform well over a wide range of scenarios.
* Developing improved computational methods and numerical methods required to achieve these goals. New parallel stochastic dynamic programming, robust optimal control, and numerical optimization methods able to make full use of modern supercomputers will allow tools developed at the Center to incorporate sectoral and process detail and explore uncertainty, in ways not previously possible.

Project Description: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments have successfully discovered the last missing piece of the standard model (SM)--the elusive Higgs boson. However, no sign of any physics beyond the SM has been observed yet. Although the standard model has been extremely effective, many unsolved questions still remain.
The focus of our group is to study models of physics beyond the SM, which tries solve the aforementioned unsolved questions, and explore their possible signatures, at LHC experiments predominately. These models include Supersymmetric models, Grand Unified Theories, Left-Right Symmetric models and various Dark Matter models.
LHC is going through an upgrade now and it will start functioning again next year with increased energy. We are pursuing a number of projects trying to predict the possible signature of new physics, pertaining to various models described above, in upcoming LHC experiments. Owing to these we need sufficient comuting power and intend to run collider simulators including MadGraph, Pythia, PGS, Delphes etc.

Project Description: Hierarchical Approximate Bayesian Computation to Detect Community Response to
Sea Level Change in the Hawaiian Archipelago. Methods that integrate population sampling from multiple taxa into a single analysis are a much needed addition to the comparative phylogeographic toolkit. Here we present a statistical framework for multi-species analysis based on hierarchical approximate Bayesian computation (hABC) for inferring community dynamics and concerted demographic response. Detecting community response to climate change is an important issue with regards to how species have and will react to past and future events. Furthermore, whether species responded individualistically or in concert is at the center of related questions about the abiotic and biotic determinants of community assembly. This method combines multi-taxon genetic datasets into a single analysis to determine the proportion of a contemporary community that historically expanded in a temporally clustered pulse as well as when the pulse occurred. We will apply this method to 59 species in the Hawaiian Archip ela!
go in order to examine community response of coral reef taxa to sea-level change in Hawaii. The method can accommodate dataset heterogeneity such as variability in effective population size, mutation rates, and sample sizes across species and utilizes borrowing strength from the simultaneous analysis of multiple species. This hABC framework used in a multi-taxa demographic context can increase our understanding of the impact of historical climate change by determining what proportion of the community responded in concert or independently, and can be used with a wide variety of comparative phylogeographic datasets as biota-wide DNA barcoding data sets accumulate.

This demographic history helps establish a baseline that is needed for research and discovery in medical genomics.
We are using a process to more accurately infer the demographic history of human populations by comparing genomic statistics from millions of genome simulations to real population genomic data. While other researchers have worked with this process using only a few individuals or a portion of a chromosome, we are pushing the limit of computing capabilities by simulating whole chromosomes of hundreds of individuals. Using the whole chromosome allows us to look at more recent demographic history, which is particularly helpful in finding genetic links to disease processes. After publication, we will make our pipeline available so other researchers can apply it to other populations.
This project pushes the frontier of genomic research in that it uses new methods, simulates a larger part of the genome, and is being applied to populations not yet thoroughly studied.

Project Description: As next-generation sequencing continues to advance, it is outstripping Moore's Law, generating more data than can be analyzed with current techniques. We have developed discrete algorithms for detecting differential expression of genes in next-generation sequencing data. This project will explore how to run these algorithms on the OSG, including efficiently staging input files, running the algorithm on the grid, and collecting the results. We will apply the techniques to real and simulated expression data from Drosophila melanogaster.

Project Description: Periodic microphases universally emerge in systems for which short-range inter-particle attraction is frustrated by long-range repulsion. The morphological richness of these phases makes them desirable material targets, but our relatively coarse understanding of even simple models limits our grasp of their assembly. The OSG computing resources will enable us to explore more solutions of the equilibrium phase behavior of a family of similar microscopic microphase formers through specialized Monte Carlo simulations.

Project Description: The Nice Model, is an evolutionary model for the outer Solar System which has explained many puzzling observed qualities of the Solar System. As the newly formed planets cleared debris from the young Solar System, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune tended to scatter objects inward, while Jupiter ejected these planetesimals out of the Solar System. To conserve angular momentum through this process, Jupiter slowly migrates inward while the other giant planets move outward. When Jupiter and Saturn cross a period of orbital resonance, the entire Solar System experiences a massive instability. We will run simulations to probe the affect of such an instability on an evolving system of inner planets.

Project Description: In order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, experts have proposed requiring major carbon dioxide emitters to modify their infrastructure to collect carbon dioxide exhaust and compress it into a super-critical fluid for injection into a well-sealed geologic structure such as an exhausted oil or natural gas reservoir. We are therefore developing a tool to assess and monitor potential carbon capture and storage sites.

We use large-scale reservoir simulations to investigate the mechanical stresses that would effect a reservoir as it is injected with super-critical carbon dioxide. Since we will not know the precise geologic structure of a given field site, this requires us to run a very large number of computationally-intensive simulations (10$^4$-10$^7$) in order to adequately investigate every possible geologic structure. These simulations can then be compared to measurements from the surface and from wells drilled into the reservoir, allowing us to identify which proposed structures best explain the data. This will allow us to infer the structure and state of the subsurface.

Project Description: A framework for massively parallel climate impact simulations: the parallel System for Integrating Impact Models and Sectors (pSIMS). This framework comprises a) tools for ingesting and
converting large amounts of data to a versatile datatype based on a common geospatial grid; b) tools for translating this datatype into custom formats for site-based models; c) a scalable parallel framework for performing large ensemble simulations, using any one of a number of different impacts models, on clusters, supercomputers, distributed grids, or clouds; d) tools and data standards for reformatting outputs to common datatypes for analysis and visualization; and e) methodologies for aggregating these datatypes to arbitrary spatial scales such as administrative and environmental demarcations. By automating many time-consuming and error-prone aspects of large-scale climate impacts studies, pSIMS
accelerates computational research, encourages model intercomparison, and enhances reproducibility of
simulation results.
