Scientists find biology’s optimal ‘molecular alphabet’ may be preordained
An international and interdisciplinary team working at the Earth-Life Science Institute (ELSI) at the Tokyo Institute of Technology has modeled the evolution of one of biology’s most fundamental sets of building blocks and found that it may have special properties that helped bootstrap itself into i…
Testing mypy stubs, plugins, and types
Have you ever wanted to test type reveal in python? In case you do you would probably need pytest-mypy-plugins for that.

Two Approaches to Data Visualization —Understanding and Persuasion
Our task for this project was to find a data set and create two different types of visualization with two different end goals. The first type is visualization for understanding. This type of…
The steady states of coupled dynamical systems compose according to matrix arithmetic
Open dynamical systems are mathematical models of machines that take input,change their internal state, and produce output. For example, one may modelanything from neurons to robots in this way. Several open dynamical systems canbe arranged in series, in parallel, and with feedback to form a new …
