May Monthly Meetup: Games and Genomes

Find Us

Here's a campus map, as it can be a bit confusing to figure out where to go (we're inside the Olin-Rice complex:) 
-- http://www.macalester.edu/about/maps/campusmap-large.html

Enter the college off of St. Claire, just west of the fenced in field area. There's a parking lot just west of Bldg. 16 on the map, and you can enter in the west entrance of Bldg. 16 and head downstairs (Room 150). Alternatively, the south entrance across from the tennis courts also works if you encounter a locked door, though sometimes there are events going on just inside that entrance, so try the west door first. The north door up the small flight of outdoor stairs is also usually open, and is a good alternative if an event is going on just inside the south entrance and the west door is locked for some reason.

Netrunner is a card game of hacking and espionage: runners break into corporate servers to steal secret plans, but the corporations have traps and misdirection at their disposal.

I studied a set of 211,000 games to look at matchups between specific runners and corporations. When dplyr was released, I rewrote my code and saw astonishing performance gains.

The Bioconductor package interactiveDisplay makes use of Shiny and D3.js to produce display() methods for standardized Bioconductor objects representing biological data.  Currently interactiveDisplay handles GRanges, GRangesList, ExpressionSet, and SummarizedExperiment objects representing genomic locations, gene expression and related experimental data.  I'll demonstrate some of the features of the package and talk a little bit about its development.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
