Also today is the Homecoming parade, which starts at OHS at p. There will be a tailgate party before the football game from 4 to p. Like many schools in the area, Onalaska's Eagle Bluff Elementary employs the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program, which teaches students what is expected of them in terms of respectful and safe behavior at the beginning of the school year and rewards the students when they follow the PBIS model for good behavior.
Unlike other schools, though, Eagle Bluff has a pretty prop to go along with it's "soaring" theme: a life-sized reproduction of an eagle's nest. The nest was unveiled at a school assembly last week and just for kicks, they decided to see how many kindergarten students could fit in it. For the record, they were able to fit 13 students comfortably. Sebastian, a 5-month-old Californian rabbit, enjoys time outside of his cage and is looking for a family that will spend lots of time playing and cuddling with him.
Sebastian is currently living at Petco in Onalaska. A well-cared for indoor rabbit can live as long as years. Rabbits can be litter box trained, and many people allow their rabbit to free-roam in the house when they are at home and then put them in their kennel overnight or when they are unsupervised.

Enhancers can be located in close proximity to, or at great distances from, their target gene. To better understand the relationship between enhancer usage and transcriptional regulation, we are integrating single cell genomic approaches with single cell imaging and genetic deletions to determine inherent properties of enhancers and regulatory networks during embryogenesis.
Using single cell ATAC-seq we recently showed that this information can predict tissue-specific enhancers, identify cell types and follow their trajectories during embryogenesis1.
We are now extending this to study the specification of the mesoderm one of the three germ layers into different tissue primordia. This is being combined with natural sequence variation and transcription factor mutants to dissect the functional impact of perturbing the system in both cis and trans, as well as with single cell imaging of nuclear topology and nascent transcription.
This information is being used to link enhancers to their target genes and build a regulatory network of mesoderm development. Chromatin folding contributes to the regulation of genomic processes such as gene activity. Existing conformation capture methods characterize genome topology through analysis of pairwise chromatin contacts in populations of cells but cannot discern whether individual interactions occur simultaneously or competitively. In this talk we will address the computational challenges associated with the analysis of nanopore sequencing data in general, and multi-way chromatin interaction data in particular.
Neighboring chromatin domain loops can form rosette-like structures through collision of their CTCF-bound anchors, as seen most prominently in cells lacking the cohesin-unloading factor WAPL.
Single-allele topology studies thus help us understand the mechanisms underlying genome folding and functioning.
Reference: Allahyar and Vermeulen etal. Nature Genetics volume 50 The three-dimensional 3D organization of the genome is an important layer of regulation in developmental, disease, and evolutionary processes. Hi-C is a high-throughput chromosome conformation capture 3C assay used to study the 3D genome by measuring pairwise interactions of genomic loci.
Analysis of Hi-C data has shown that the genome is organized into higher-order organizational units such as compartments and topologically associating domains TADs. Recent comparisons of TAD-finding methods found them to be unstable to different resolutions and sparsity levels of Hi-C data, suggesting the need for more robust methods. GRiNCH uses graph regularization to encourage neighboring genomic regions to belong to the same low-dimensional space.
GRiNCH can recover TAD-like clusters which are significantly enriched in architectural protein binding in the boundaries and are more stable to sparse and low-depth Hi-C datasets than existing methods.
Taken together, GRiNCH offers a promising approach to identifying biologically meaningful structural domains of the genome. With miRNAs known to be involved in cancer initiation and progression, a better understanding of miRNA transcriptional regulation and its disruption in cancer is clearly required. By combining TFBSs and miRNA TSSs information with cancer patient data, we evaluated the combined effects of transcriptional and post-transcriptional dysregulation of gene expression with the alteration of miRNA regulation in cancer through cis-regulatory alterations.
Our predictions were enriched for protein-coding and miRNA genes previously annotated as potential cancer drivers. Functional enrichment analyses highlighted the dysregulation of key pathways associated with carcinogenesis.
These results confirm that our method predicts cis-regulatory mutations related to the dysregulation of key gene regulatory networks in cancer patients. This new strategy represents an original methodology to decipher how the gene regulatory program is disrupted in cancer cells by combining transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Motivation:High-throughput conformation capture experiments such as Hi-C provide genome-wide maps of chromatin interactions, enabling life scientists to investigate the role of the three-dimensional structure of genomes in gene regulation and other essential cellular functions.
A fundamental problem in the analysis of Hi-C data is how to compare two contact maps derived from Hi-C experiments. Detecting similarities and differences between contact maps is critical in evaluating the reproducibility of replicate experiments and for identifying differential genomic regions with biological significance.

Due to the complexity of chromatin conformations and the presence of technology-driven and sequence-specific biases, the comparative analysis of Hi-C data is analytically and computationally challenging. Results:We present a novel method called Selfish for the comparative analysis of Hi-C data that takes advantage of the structural self-similarity in contact maps.
We define a novel self-similarity measure to design algorithms for i measuring reproducibility for Hi-C replicate experiments and ii finding differential chromatin interactions between two contact maps.Sign up for your own profile on GitHub, the best place to host code, manage projects, and build software alongside 40 million developers.

Exploded View of Building Skin. A bed hospital design in the city center. Also conserving existing trees presenting in that area. To design a cafeteria in campus that acts as a recreational space for the students in the campus. The cafe also had to stand out in the college by providing a source of recreation and fun to its users through its design.
The major users, the students, commute throughout the campus by walk, cycles, skateboards. Minority of the users use powered motor vehicles. The idea is to incorporate a design element for the users to engage in. The idea was to create a form that would stand out from the existing eating joints in the campus and also serve a good purpose. The roof was used to create a unique profile for the building. It not only rises from the ground but also provides an area for the students to have small birthday parties and celebrations.
This also ensures proper privacy for the outside visitors even with the college students present. A sculpture made up of a similar sized wooden pieces. It was made for the national level symposium at the university. The build up of energy is symbolized in a multitude of small wooden pieces coming together to form a single human like sculpture, relating to almost visitors at the symposium. The involvement of the user can be considered as the democratization of housing.Did we mention you can do it on your smartphone?
On Jan. Stories will be shared in the form of audio and video podcasts focused on cutting-edge science and social science research and the human stories behind it. The first season of Science Narratives addresses social robotics and highlights the work of Bilge Mutluassociate professor of robotics in the Department of Computer Sciences and director of the Wisconsin Human-Computer Interaction Lab.
Mutlu and his colleagues use human-centered principles and methods for designing robotic technologies. Bilge Mutlu, associate professor in the Department of Computer Sciences, works with a robotic arm. Minnie, a robot that helps children read using cue cards, peeking from her box.

Make a shopping list together, buy the necessary ingredients, and give the recipes a try.
Pack the leftovers for lunch. When eating out, favor restaurants that use reusable plates, cups, and utensils. Talk with your children about why you're making that choice. If you don't finish your restaurant meal, take it home in a reusable container that you've brought from home instead of using the disposable container that restaurants offer. Quick-reference Lunch Foods Read this list with your children. Make your children responsible for adding the ice pack and placing their own lunchbox near the door or in the car.
Teach your older children how to make nutritious, waste-free lunches and then let them make their own lunches. Older children can also be responsible for washing their reusable lunch containers or rinsing them and putting them in the dishwasher. Children of all ages can take responsibility for putting recyclables in the recycle bin. Want to reduce food waste.
Here are some things you can do. Cut up fruits and vegetables. Children often take 1 or 2 bites out of an uncut apple or banana and throw the rest away. To avoid this, pack cut-up fruits and vegetables in a reusable container. Your child can take a few bites and save the rest for later. Pack drinks in reusable containers. Children cannot reseal juice boxes, cans, or pouches. Often they drink half (or less) and throw the rest away.
To get the most out of your money, buy drinks in larger containers. Send a small amount to school in a reusable container. Before offering your children an afterschool snack, request that they finished their lunch. How many times have you given them a snack and then dumped the contents of their lunch box into the trash. Ask your child to bring home lunch leftovers. Looking at leftover lunches is a great way to get information about your children's lunch preferences.
Find out why certain foods have come back uneaten. Did your child not like it. Was she not hungry enough to eat everything in the lunchbox. Was there a birthday celebration at school that day. Did she share someone else's lunch instead. Maintain a dialogue without criticizing. Consider making a list of foods that your child likes to eat for lunch and update it regularly with input from your child. You may find that she prefers romaine lettuce to red leaf lettuce.
