I've been working with my friend Will on some FPGA graphics demos. This one draws metaballs - a funky oldskool effect

Sequence classification and labelling for protein loops

Sequence classification and labelling for protein loops

Sequences appear a lot in biology, as you might expect. A and C and T and G, or ASP, GLY, VAL, PRO and many others. Looking for patterns in this data is half of the battle. Looking for patterns in the mountain of data is a herculian task. No wonder we are trying to teach machines to look for patterns.

For some reason, HacDC has a scanning electron microscope, and it might just work

Protein Loops in Tensorflow - A.I Bio Part 2

Protein Loops in Tensorflow - A.I Bio Part 2

How can we go from a list of amino acids to a full 3D structure, using just a neural network?
