Quantifying the local resolution of cryo-EM density maps | Nature Methods

November 14, 2017

Quantifying the local resolution of #cryoEM density maps “Theory…based on the following idea: a L Angstrom feature exists at a pt…if a 3D local sinusoid of wavelength L is statistically detectable above noise at that point.”

We propose a mathematical theory and an efficient algorithm for measuring local resolution that address all of the above limitations. The theory (Online Methods) is based on the following idea: a λ-Å feature exists at a point in the volume if a three-dimensional (3D) local sinusoid of wavelength λ is statistically detectable above noise at that point. A likelihood-ratio hypothesis test of the local sinusoid versus noise can detect this feature at a given P value (typically P = 0.05). We define the local resolution at a point as the smallest λ at which the local sinusoid is detectable, and we account for multiple testing with an FDR procedure.

Links to “Oncology at the Limits” and TRACERx Consortium

Here is a link to the “Oncology at the Limits” Conference which is co-organised between UCL and Yale, …. It will be from
19th to 21st March at the Royal College of Physicians in London.

The Keynote this year was … about the Lung TRACERx consortium. It is a project which
performs multi-site sampling of tumours to gain an insight into subclonal populations, and also follows up on the presence, expansion or response to therapy of these subclones via circulating-tumour-DNA. …

Wikipedia shapes language in scientific papers

October 27, 2017

"Wikipedia is one of the world’s most popular websites, but scientists rarely cite it in their papers. Despite this, the online encyclopedia seems to be shaping the language that researchers use in papers, according to an experiment showing that words and phrases in recently published Wikipedia articles subsequently appeared more frequently in scientific papers"

“Thompson and co-author Douglas Hanley, an economist at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, commissioned PhD students to write 43 chemistry articles on topics that weren’t yet on Wikipedia. In January 2015, they published a randomized set of half of the articles to the site. The other half, which served as control articles, weren’t uploaded.

Using text-mining techniques to measure the frequency of words, they found that the language in the scientific papers drifted over the study period as new terms were introduced into the field. This natural drift equated to roughly one new term for every 250 words, Thompson told Nature. On top of those natural changes in language over time, the authors found that, on average, another 1 in every 300 words in a scientific paper was influenced by language in the Wikipedia article.”
