Seminar by Andrew Senior, Google DeepMind, "Alphafold: Improved Protein Sturcture Prediction Using Potentials from Deep Learning"

DeepMind's AlphaFold protein structure prediction system was recently ranked first in free-modelling at the CASP13 (Critical Assessment of Protein Structure Prediction) biennial blind assessment of prediction methods. The system relies upon prediction of inter-residue distances by a very deep neural network. Using these distance distributions and a reference distribution from a similar neural network, we construct a potential and show that we can optimize this potential by a simple application of gradient descent, as well as with a more conventional fragment assembly / simulated annealing algorithm. Despite not using templates, the system also performed well in the CASP template-based category. We will discuss the training and use of the neural network and present contact- and structure-prediction resu. Campus room: CSE2 / Amazon Auditorium. Event types: Lectures/Seminars. Special Events.

Forest Bathing Walk

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest. Cost: $25 Register online or by phone (206-685-8033). Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu; 206-685-8033. Ticket Link: https://www.uwbotanicgardenscatalog.org/Forest-Bathing-Walks-P1819C265.aspx.

Forest Bathing Walk

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest. Cost: $25 Register online or by phone (206-685-8033). Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu; 206-685-8033. Ticket Link: https://www.uwbotanicgardenscatalog.org/Forest-Bathing-Walks-P1819C265.aspx.

Gardening with the Seasons: Fall

Autumn is a dynamic season in the garden. Many plants are heading into dormancy, while others are in a period of active growth.

Some of the best things to do - or to avoid - at this time of year may seem counter-intuitive to some gardeners. This session will cover what to plant in fall, lawn care, how to prepare the garden for winter, and how to maximize seasonal interest and appearance. Cost: $28 Register online, or by phone (206-685-8033) About this series: Plants and gardens don't live by the written calendar, but by the seasonal cycles and cues of changes in daylight, temperature, and moisture.  When gardeners become acquainted with the seasonal rhythms and life cycles in the garden, and learn to work in sync with nature, caring for the garden becomes more of a process and less of a battle with potential garden… Campus room: Douglas Classroom.

Wilding: Returning Nature to Our Farm Book Talk and Signing

Wilding: Returning Nature to Our Farm tells the amazing story of the daring wildlife experiment of Isabella Tree and her husband conservationist, Sir Charles Burrell: the rewilding of their 3,500-acre family estate, Knepp Castle. Forced to accept that intensive farming on the clay soil was not working, they decided to step back and let nature take over. By introducing free-roaming herbivores – proxies of large animals that once roamed Britain— their degraded agricultural land became a functioning ecosystem again. In less than 20 years wildlife has rocketed and many endangered species have returned to Knepp. Soils are now providing benefits for the public good: filtering and purifying natural water sources, mitigating against floods, and capturing carbon. The Knepp experience challenges conventional ideas about our past and present landscape, and points the way to a wilder, richer future. No RSVP necessary! Presenter: Author Isabella Tree.

Decay Pathogens

This session will focus on fungal decay diseases, prevalent in the damp fall season, that affect many of our native tree species in the Pacific Northwest. Recognizing these pathogens is essential when assessing tree health and structure. We will examine samples in the classroom and scout for examples in the field. Plant Health Care (PHC) approaches to management, including acceptable Integrated Pest Management (IPM) methods will be covered. We will also do diagnosis practice in the lab. If some of your plant problem samples have you stymied, let’s figure out what’s wrong with your plant! This series will introduce you to plant diseases and insect pests of the Pacific Northwest when they are at their peak or most easily detected. We will look at some common and familiar species as well as some new and unusual pests you need to know. Plant specimen samples will be reviewed indoors in addition to diagnosing pest problems in the field. Least toxic and most sustainable pest management methods will be emphasized… Presenter: Bess Bronstein. Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu; 206-685-8033.

Forest Bathing Walk

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest. Cost: $25 Register online or by phone (206-685-8033). Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu; 206-685-8033. Ticket Link: https://www.uwbotanicgardenscatalog.org/Forest-Bathing-Walks-P1819C265.aspx.

Cross-cultural and Cross-linguistic Perspectives on Narrative

Culture-specific patterns of communication play a pivotal role in individuals’ understanding of how to interact with those around them. It is well known that the Japanese communication style is intuitive and indirect, and that interpersonal communication often relies on intuition, empathy, and feeling. This lecture focuses on narrative discourse, a linguistic meeting ground of culture, cognition, and emotions, specifically examining various issues such as genre, topic, and oral vs. written narratives. The lecture demonstrates the importance of paying attention not only to narrative content/structure but also to the appropriate use of linguistic devices. Accordingly, the overall goal of this lecture is to grasp culture- and language-specific ways of expressing affective elements in narrative discourse.

TALK | Desert Borderland: The Making of Modern Egypt and Libya

Presenter: Matthew Ellis, Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation Chair in International Affairs and Middle East Studies at Sarah Lawrence College. He is a historian specializing in the social, intellectual, and cultural history of the modern Middle East and North Africa. In this talk—based on his recent book, Desert Borderland: The Making of Modern Egypt and Libya (Stanford, 2018)—Matthew Ellis adopts a different approach to national territoriality, arguing that Egypt and Libya emerged steadily as modern territorial nation-states in the decades before World War I despite the lack of official maps defining their borders. By reconstructing the multiple layers and meanings of territoriality in this desert borderland, Ellis suggests that national territoriality was not simply imposed on Egypt’s western—or Ottoman Libya’s eastern—domains by centralizing state power, but rather emerged only through a complex and multilayered process of negotiation with a range of local actors motivated by their own conceptions… Campus location: Thomson Hall (THO).
