New approaches to big data in genome sequencing 31 Jan 2017
The ever increasing throughput and reducing cost of DNA sequencing continue to challenge computational data analysis associated with genome sequencing, requiring novel algorithmic and software solutions that take advantage of structure in the data. We will develop new efficient computational solutions to handle and analyse very large genome sequence data sets. Specifically, we plan to develop software to address the following topics, in the context of the human Haplotype Reference Consortium with tens of thousands of whole human genome sequences, and also large non-human vertebrate reference genome sequencing projects. We will develop compressed data structures to store deep population resequencing data, while supporting fast genetic analyses that work directly from the compressed data. We will extend these methods to new reference structures based on variation graphs. We will develop new approaches to long range genome sequence assembly, using long reads to scaffold deep short read assemblies, and using linkage disequilibrium structure in population data to scaffold assemblies, incorporating methods from topic (1). We will use machine learning approaches to address statistical problems such as indel and structural variant calling that are hard to model exactly, using large simulated and real data sets and methods from (1) and (2).
Funding of outings/ speakers 30 Jun 2018
This grant will fund transport and two outings for elderly women within the Kilsyth community. This will help recruit new members for the group and reduce social isolation.
This project will provide costumes and materials to make a drama set. This will enable people with learning disabilities to take part in a community event, reducing social isolation and increasing self-confidence and wellbeing.
This group will use the funding for a family poetry project to encourage parents and children to enjoy poetry together and develop language and literacy skills.
Christmas Allotment Wreaths 29 Sep 2016
This project will use the funding to invite the local community together to partake in a wreath making workshop. This will enable the organisation to help celebrate Christmas and bring the local community together in a fun and social activity.
Defibrillator 27 Jan 2016
This organisation will use the funding to purchase a defibrillator for the community cricket club. This will provide medical equipment which will be used to support the health and well being of people within the local community who use the cricket ground for activities, specifically older residents within this rurally isolated community.
Big Blocks for Big Play at Gordon Park 17 Mar 2016
This grant will be used to purchase of Large Blocks to allow construction based play. This type of outdoor play allows children, with their parents, to learn and problem solve together.
The Fabulous Fifties 20 May 2015
The organisation will use the funding to set up a 1950s style cafe on Thame High Street for two afternoons a week. This will enable adults with special needs to get work experience in order to enter the workplace and gain independence.
This group will use the funding to train residential volunteers in the woodlands maintenance. The group will also purchase equipment such as a wood chipper and chainsaw to achieve self-sustainability.
