These mAbs may be useful for detecting the presence of dyes, stabilizing dyes, purification or other potential uses. Intern will receive training in tissue culture, immunoassays, mAb development, flow cytometry, dye composition.

Characterization of a novel cell population seen in antigen specific immune responses

Periodically novel cell populations are discovered within the immune system. One such novel antigen specific population has been observed to emerge early in murine immune response to proteinaceous immunogens. These cells appear between days 8-14, have no B cell markers, capture antigen, bear surface Ig and are polymorphonuclear. Much remains to be characterized on these cells. This project will focus upon the effects of dose or non proteinaceous immunogens on the emergence of the same cell population. Intern will receive training in tissue culture, immunoassays, animal handling, mAb development, flow cytometry.

Multi-color flow cytometry market development

To set up multi-color flow cytometry experiments correctly requires detailed knowledge of the proteins you wish to detect and the antibodies you will use to detect them.  This project will focus on collecting data for the approximately 100 most popular clones used in multi-color flow.  Using these clones the researcher will determine antigen density and will determine relative brightness of the different fluor conjugates we sell.  Testing will be performed on multiple donors using at least two different flow cytometers. The intern will receive experience in flow cytometry assays from immunostaining to instrument set-up and data analysis.

Characterization of Novel Single Laser Flow Cytometers

BD is developing new single laser flow cytometers to take advantage of recently introduced novel Violet and Ultraviolet fluorescent monoclonal antibody reagents. This project will focus on a Systems level evaluation of the performance of both the instrument and the reagents.  Results from immunological assays using different combinations of reagents on biological samples will be evaluated against variations in the optical design of the instruments.   The intern will gain experience in the fields of immunology, flow cytometry instrumentation/optics, assay development and data analysis.

Generation of Novel Nucleic Acid Probes using Light Harvesting Fluorescent Polymer Dyes

The goal of the project would be to help develop a protocol by which to bioconjugate oligonucleotide probes to a new class of fluorescent polymer dyes developed by Sirigen and BD.  Such probes will be needed to evaluate the performance of these new dyes in a variety of molecular detection formats.  Of particular interest will be their utility in detecting RNA in human blood cells.  Based on the protocols developed for antibody conjugation the student will adapt a robust method for conjugating, purifying and characterizing the corresponding oligonucleotide-polymer probe.  Significant focus will be placed on the purification methods utilized in to arrive at the final probe.

Various software modules will contact LilSister when a problem is detected or some issue needs to be broadcast. LilSister will contact people by email based on various configuration rules. Due to large number of customers, its more difficult to manage events and error messages from LilSister. Moreover, error messages are cached in memory instead of a database. We are looking to enhance our System monitoring functionality by adding following features:

Reduce number of lilsister servers to one (or a small cluster, maybe one with a backup) Create a db for lilsister to store problems reported When lilsister sends out the daily message about errors reported, it should just send ONE email with ALL agencies in tabular form Add intelligence to truncate the report by only listing 1 instance of each error per agency (if time permits) Allow annotations for errors reported

Develop a GUI that parses condition.xml and performs the following functions:

Display all relationships and states. Perform some syntax and sanity check (such as detecting infinite condition loops). Parse a log file and reconstruct the condition state. The GUI should be able to step through the states of the run. During the step through, the GUI should visually depict the states of the conditions.

2. Scalable Compute Farm - TIP - ALL STUDENT OPENINGS HAVE BEEN FILLED
Interns will design and implement an MPI based scalable compute farm for doing massively parallel monte-Carlo computer simulations, e.g. for block error rate simulations (BLER). MPI stands for Message Passing Interface. It is an industry standard library (API) for implementing distributed computing algorithms. Typically, the monte-carlo simulation is a command line driven program that outputs results to the screen or to a text file. Using different random seeds, one may manually run multiple copies of the monte-carlo binary executable on multiple computers (or multiple copies of the simulation on the same computer using different cores) and manually collect the results. In this project , students will use the MPI library to automate this process.

The compute farm should be capable of existing locally or existing in the Amazon EC2 service ("The Cloud"). Expected outcome would allow for an integrated modem demod+decode performance simulation capable of outputting BLER curves for all modcodes in a single 24 hour period. Reduced simulation time will allow for more rapid hardware development/verification time and faster time to market. For example, ASIC developments time could be greatly accelerated.

Phase 1) Build local compute farm

Build a local compute farm out of 8-10x quad-core 1U rack mount computers. Install Linux OS, configure networking, configure MPI tools. Modify a LDPC decoder simulation to add MPI capability. Verify same BLER vs EsNo performance in MPI vs non-MPI environment. Verify simulation time speedup to target rates.

 

Phase 2) Static Cloud Computing

Deploy MPI cluster to Amazon EC2 static cloud infrastructure. Update LDPC decoder simulation for static cloud.

 

Phase 3) Dynamic Cloud Computing

Update LDPC decoder simulation to dynamically instantiate cloud computing resources. Develop a GUI for simulation monitoring and batch launching. Develop financial modeling tool to help engineers and resource planners trade longer simulation runtime w/ few cloud resources vs shorter simulation runtime w/ many cloud resources.

7. Remote Automated Sensor Station - TIP - ALL STUDENT OPENINGS HAVE BEEN FILLED
A remote automated sensor station is a standalone sensing device that exists off of the grid. It has its own power source and can relay data to a central location over a satellite link. These devices are used wherever data must be autonomously collected and transmitted, where there is no grid-power, and when satellite is the most economical method for the communications link. There are diverse applications for such stations, including environmental and earth monitoring (such as remote weather stations, wildfire detection, snow depth sensors, wildlife monitoring, air quality monitoring, water quality, and landslide detection); vehicle traffic monitoring; military (such as perimieter sensing); agriculture (such as irrigation automation and monitoring); and structural monitoring (such as stress sensors on bridges and tunnels).

Students would develop a remote automated sensor station using a ViaSat modem, Transmit Receive Integrated Assembly (TRIA), and antenna. These would be integrated with a battery, a solar panel, and a microcontroller device for power management, collecting data from sensors, and transmitting the data over the satellite link. The system would also include a server application for collecting and displaying data gathered from the sensors and managing multiple remote sensors. Interns will evaluate and select components (battery, solar panel, microcontroller board, and sensors), design microcontroller software, design any circuit boards required for sensor integration, design a server application for collecting and displaying transmitted data and managing multiple remote stations, and finally deploy and test the system in a real-world off-the-grid sensing application.
