Combining multiple tools outperforms individual methods in gene set enrichment analyses [article]

Monther Alhamdoosh, Milica Ng, Nicholas J. Wilson, Julie M. Sheridan, Huy Huynh, Michael J. Wilson, Matthew E. Ritchie
2016 bioRxiv   pre-print
Gene set enrichment (GSE) analysis allows researchers to efficiently extract biological insight from long lists of differentially expressed genes by interrogating them at a systems level. In recent years, there has been a proliferation of GSE analysis methods and hence it has become increasingly difficult for researchers to select an optimal GSE tool based on their particular data set. Moreover, the majority of GSE analysis methods do not allow researchers to simultaneously compare gene set

Results: The ensemble of genes set enrichment analyses (EGSEA) is a method developed for RNA-sequencing data that combines results from twelve algorithms and calculates collective gene set scores to improve the biological relevance of the highest ranked gene sets. redEGSEA's gene set database contains around 25,000 gene sets from sixteen collections. It has multiple visualization capabilities that allow researchers to view gene sets at various levels of granularity. EGSEA has been tested on simulated data and on a number of human and mouse data sets and, based on biologists' feedback, consistently outperforms the individual tools that have been combined. Our evaluation demonstrates the superiority of the ensemble approach for GSE analysis, and its utility to effectively and efficiently extrapolate biological functions and potential involvement in disease processes from lists of differentially regulated genes.

Streaming Variational Bayes [article]

Tamara Broderick, Nicholas Boyd, Andre Wibisono, Ashia C. Wilson, Michael I. Jordan
2013 arXiv   pre-print
We present SDA-Bayes, a framework for (S)treaming, (D)istributed, (A)synchronous computation of a Bayesian posterior. The framework makes streaming updates to the estimated posterior according to a user-specified approximation batch primitive. We demonstrate the usefulness of our framework, with variational Bayes (VB) as the primitive, by fitting the latent Dirichlet allocation model to two large-scale document collections. We demonstrate the advantages of our algorithm over stochastic

Structural Biology of Influenza Hemagglutinin: An Amaranthine Adventure

Nicholas C Wu, Ian A Wilson
2020 Viruses  
Hemagglutinin (HA) glycoprotein is an important focus of influenza research due to its role in antigenic drift and shift, as well as its receptor binding and membrane fusion functions, which are indispensable for viral entry. Over the past four decades, X-ray crystallography has greatly facilitated our understanding of HA receptor binding, membrane fusion, and antigenicity. The recent advances in cryo-EM have further deepened our comprehension of HA biology. Since influenza HA constantly

The incessant accumulation of knowledge on the structural biology of HA over several decades has also facilitated the design and development of novel therapeutics and vaccines. This review describes the current status of the field of HA structural biology, how we got here, and what the next steps might be.

Visualizing electrostatic gating effects in two-dimensional heterostructures [article]

Paul V. Nguyen, Natalie C. Teutsch, Nathan P. Wilson, Joshua Kahn, Xue Xia, Viktor Kandyba, Alexei Barinov, Gabriel Constantinescu, Nicholas D. M. Hine, Xiaodong Xu, David H. Cobden, Neil R. Wilson
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The ability to directly observe electronic band structure in modern nanoscale field-effect devices could transform understanding of their physics and function. One could, for example, visualize local changes in the electrical and chemical potentials as a gate voltage is applied. One could also study intriguing physical phenomena such as electrically induced topological transitions and many-body spectral reconstructions. Here we show that submicron angle-resolved photoemission (micro-ARPES)

In graphene devices, we observe a shift of the chemical potential by 0.6 eV across the Dirac point as a gate voltage is applied. In several 2D semiconductors we see the conduction band edge appear as electrons accumulate, establishing its energy and momentum, and observe significant band-gap renormalization at low densities. We also show that micro-ARPES and optical spectroscopy can be applied to a single device, allowing rigorous study of the relationship between gate-controlled electronic and excitonic properties.

Managing creativityandinnovation

Nicholas. C. Wilson, David Stokes
2005 Journal of Small Business and Enterprise Development  
Purpose To distinguish managing creativity from managing innovation and highlight the importance for cultural entrepreneurs of recognising the differences between the two. Design / methodology / approach Based on Government-sponsored research project looking at access to finance in the UK music industry. Interviews were carried out with cultural entrepreneurs, finance providers and industry experts. A conceptual model of work and creative production put forward by Leadbeater and Oakley (1999)

Findings Highlight the importance of recognising the differences between managing creativity and innovation, and call for effective management of them both, through developing business communication skills, external focus and promotional strategies. The different nature and role of collective activities associated with promoting creativity and innovation are highlighted. Research limitations / implications The findings are generalised across other "creative industry" businesses, but the empirical research is based only on the music industry. 4 Practical implications Practical steps can be taken to increase the success of small creative businesses in managing both the generation of new ideas (creativity) and the successful exploitation of those new ideas (innovation). Formal education courses have an important role in encouraging creativity and flair alongside the acquisition of core business skills necessary for innovation. Originality / value This paper makes an important contribution in separating creativity and innovationconcepts that are too often used interchangeably. It is argued that this analytical separation will help practitioners and researchers gain a better understanding of the management behaviours required to foster both successfully.
