Metagenomics of Insect Predator Gut Contents

Abstract: 

Metagenomics of Insect Predator Gut Contents

These researchers are performing direct shotgun sequencing of the DNA community (metagenomics) of the gut content of arthropod predators and predict they will reveal prey consumed with higher taxonomic breadth and resolution than previously feasible. They use MSI to store the sequencing data.

Resource Allocation in Humanitarian Operations

Abstract: 

Resource Allocation in Humanitarian Operations

This project studies inventory management in the context of supplementary food and disease progression in a finite time horizon. In addition to presenting structural properties, the researcher explores the efficacy of pragmatic heuristics in this context. MSI resources are used to computationally evaluate the performance of different heuristics.
