"Beyond the Native State: Uncovering theSequence Determinants of a Proteins Energy Landscape"

Understanding the structural and dynamic information encoded in the primary sequence of a protein is one of the most fundamental challenges in modern biology. The amino acid sequence of a protein encodes more than the native three-dimensional structure; it encodes the entire energy landscape an ensemble of conformations whose energetics and dynamics are important for folding, binding and activity. While small changes in the sequence usually have minimal effect on the native structure, the effects on the energy landscape can be dramatic. The challenge, therefore, is to understand when and which sequence variants affect the landscape in a meaningful way. I will present our recent results probing the high-energy fluctuations on the energy landscape using a combination of single-molecule and ensemble-based studies.

Caterpillars, Trees, and Polygons by Philippe Demontigny '14
Bronfman Science Center, 106 18 Hoxsey St, Williamstown, MA 01267, USA

A Characterization of Trees with Convex Obstacle Number 1 or 2

Mathematics and Statistics Department Thesis Defense

Abstract: A convex obstacle representation of a tree $T$ is a drawing of $T$ in the plane with a set of convex polygons so that two vertices are connected by an edge if and only if that edge does not cross any of the polygons. The minimum number of obstacles required to represent a tree in this way is called the convex obstacle number of the tree. This new description of a graph has steadily gained popularity since its introduction in 2009, and is particularly interesting because of its similarity to visibility graphs, which have been studied extensively and have applications in robot motion planning and architecture. So far, it is known that a representation using only 5 convex obstacles exists for all trees, which implies that the upper bound for the convex obstacle number of any given tree is five. However, not much is known about which trees have a convex obstacle number that is less than 5. In this thesis, we begin to fill this gap by providing necessary and sufficient conditions for a tree to have convex obstacle number 1 or 2. We also provide insights into how one could approach the problem of finding all trees with convex obstacle number 3 or 4.

The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the war of Ideas
Griffin Hall, 3 844 Main St, Williamstown, MA 01267

Political pundit and AEI scholar Jonah Goldberg is coming to Williams to speak about the subject of his latest book "The Tyranny of Cliches"

The book has the following description:


According to Jonah Goldberg, if the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didnt exist, the greatest trick liberals ever pulled was convincing themselves theyre not ideological.

Today, objective journalists, academics, and moderate politicians peddle some of the most radical arguments by hiding them in homespun aphorisms. Barack Obama casts himself as a disciple of reason: Hes a pragmatist, opposed to the ideology and drama of the Right, solely concerned with what works. And todays liberals follow his lead, spouting countless clichs."

The Alphabet of Revelations: (Meta)Genomics as a Means to Understand Microbes and their Complex Ecosystems

Claire Ting

Department of Biology

Microorganisms are the keystone of life in diverse ecosystems. To understand their impacts on human health to climate change, it is critical to have knowledge at the level of individual cells, as well as dynamic communities. Advances in genomics and metagenomics have transformed our understanding of the biology, ecology and evolution of microorganisms. In her talk, Claire Ting will focus on cyanobacteria, which have evolved to dominate vast regions of the open oceans and have a pivotal role in global energy cycles. She will address how genomics and metagenomics research has contributed to an integrative understanding of their biology and how diversity at the molecular level impacts their ecology in ocean ecosystems.

Class of 1960 Lecture: "Harmontology: diverse conceptions of the nature of harmony, with implications for its presence or absence in several musical styles."
Bernhard Music Center, 30 54 Chapin Hall Dr, Williams College, Williamstown, MA 01267, USA

Professor William Benjamin of the University of British Columbia offers a lecture titled "Harmontology: diverse conceptions of the nature of harmony, with implications forits presence or absence in several musical styles."

Beginning in the eighteenth century, a dominant strain of musical thought held that to understand (European) music was to recognize its chords and appreciate the key-making character of their progression in time. In the early 20th-century, important theorists began to question this view, and proposed that primacy ought instead to be attach to line, melody, and the traditional system for combining melodies known as counterpoint. The most radical of these proposals was Heinrich Schenker's. He acknowledged harmony as an apparent motor of musical continuity, but viewed it as a supervenient property, one that arises as a by-product of the contrapuntal interaction of a bass and a leading melodic voice, each obeying its own rules of melodic construction as well as the motivic demands of a specific work.

By Eisa Davis and Directed by Charlotte Brathwaite.

In acclaimed actress and award-winning African-American playwright Eisa Daviss magical, poetic, coming-of-age drama, a finalist for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize, a newborn baby is set adrift on a river, only to be saved when it drifts into a cradle of bulrushes along its banks. The multiracial foundling, who goes by the name Bulrusher, is raised during the 1950s by members of the predominantly white community of Boontling, a region in Northern California that possesses, amongst other idiosyncrasies, its own vernacular language. Though gifted with the ability to tell the future, Bulrusher is hardly prepared for the journey of racial, sexual, and social self-discovery that ensues when she befriends a young African-American woman, Vera, a refugee from segregated Alabama, who is holding onto some very deep secrets of her own. Canadian-born and internationally recognized director and performer Charlotte Brathwaite (Woman Bomb, The Coming, Good Gods, A Midsummer Nights Dream), renowned for her 2010 production of Tennessee Williamss A Streetcar Named Desire performed by a cast of African-American actors, will direct.
