By studying the changing geometry of cell nuclei in fruit flies, scientists have gained a better understanding of the dynamics that shape the part of our cells that carries our DNA.
It develops, deploys and maintains computational infrastructure — from supercomputers to desktop PCs — dedicated solely to the use of Flatiron researchers.
Machine learning has become an indispensable tool for computational science, and it is an active and growing area of research throughout the Flatiron Institute.
Underlying all biological processes are molecules and their interactions with each other. However, our ability to understand how these molecules function over biologically relevant scales remains very limited.
This collaboration, directed by Greg Bryan of Columbia University, aims to understand and determine the evolution and initial conditions of our universe, using observations via a Bayesian forward modeling approach.

A unified model for the co-evolution of galaxies and their circumgalactic medium: the relative roles of turbulence and atomic cooling physics
The circumgalactic medium (CGM) plays a pivotal role in regulating gas flows around galaxies and thus shapes their evolution. However,…arXiv:2211.09755
