Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, September 12th from 7:00
to 9:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Samantha Kleinberg presents:
"CLARITY: A Common Lisp Data Alignment Repository"
Samantha, for the second year in a row, won and accepted a Google Summer
of Code grant to extend her previous work of CL-GoDB and to:
Create a system where people upload their data files and fill out
a form with as much information as they know about the data via a
simple for or series of checkboxes. Then, when the data is
inserted into the database, it gets placed into a
phylogenetic-type tree of all diseases. The lengths of edges in
the tree represent the distance of nodes from one another. So, in
the case of disease, specific breast cancer cell lines are a
subset of breast cancer and then all cancers. Thus, distance in
the tree between those cell lines would be less than that between
breast cancer cell lines and prostate cancer cell lines. Every set
number (maybe 100, maybe 500) of inserts, the tree gets
re-optimized. In this way, the tree is continually learning and
re-grouping patients, but each individual insert is quick.
Hear about both CL-GoDB and CLARITY, her winning-experiences with Lisp
and about Google's Summer of Code project.
Directions to Trinity:
602 E. 9th St. & Ave B., on Thomkins Square Park
From N,R,Q,W (8th Street NYU Stop) and the 4,5 (Astor Street Stop):
Walk East 4 blocks on St. Marks, cross Thomkins Square Park.
From F&V (2nd Ave Stop):
Walk E one or two blocks, turn north for 8 short blocks
From L (1st Ave Stop):

The M9 bus line drops you off at the doorstep and the M15 is near get

To get there by car, take the FDR (East River Drive) to Houston then
