AhriBot: A Python Bot Written for Discord Tasks

Description

Since the release of Discord in March of 2015 it has become the choice VoIP client for 25 million users, pulling in more each day from many sources including online

Since the release of Discord in March of 2015 it has become the choice VoIP client for 25 million users, pulling in more each day from many sources including online video games with no voice chat, such as League of Legends. With such an expansive user base and many servers hosting multiple users during all times of the day, for a server admin to always be monitoring users is unreasonable. AhriBot aims to solve this problem by providing general administration through a command system to a server while it is logged onto that server. Specifically, AhriBot will be tailored for use on servers where League of Legends is primarily being played. Using commands issued to AhriBot, users can get statistics about their current game. By providing a set of features for general users, and a more specific set of features for League of Legends, AhriBot provides a greater experience and will help players to have quicker access to information about the game without having to travel to multiple outside sources.

NBA PlayerTrack: A Mobile Application Providing NBA Fans with Statistics, News, and Information about their Favorite Players

Description

Current popular NBA mobile applications do little to provide information about the NBA's players, usually providing limited statistical information or news and completely ignoring players' presence on social media. For

Current popular NBA mobile applications do little to provide information about the NBA's players, usually providing limited statistical information or news and completely ignoring players' presence on social media. For fans, especially fans who are unfamiliar with the NBA, finding this information by themselves can be a daunting task, one which requires extensive knowledge about how the NBA provides media related to its players. NBA PlayerTrack has been designed to centralize player information from a variety of media streams, making it easier for fans to learn about and stay up-to-date with players and enabling fan discussion about those players and the NBA in general. By providing a variety of references to the locations of player information, NBA PlayerTrack also serves as a tool for learning about how and where the NBA presents player-related media, allowing fans to more easily locate information they desire as they become more invested in the NBA.

Impromp2: An Event Searching Application

We created an Android application, Impromp2, which allows users to search for and save events of interest to them in the Phoenix area. The backend, built on the Parse platform, gathers events daily using Web services and stores them in a database. Impromp2 was designed to improve upon similarly-purposed apps available for Android devices in several key ways, especially in user interface design and data interaction capability. This is a full-stack software project that explores databases and their performance considerations, Web services, user interface design, and the challenges of app development for a mobile platform.

Gene Networks of Fully Connected Triads with Complete Auto-Activation Enable Multistability and Stepwise Stochastic Transitions

Description

Fully-connected triads (FCTs), such as the Oct4-Sox2-Nanog triad, have been implicated as recurring transcriptional motifs embedded within the regulatory networks that specify and maintain cellular states. To explore the possible connections between FCT topologies and cell fate determinations, we employed computational network screening to search all possible FCT topologies for multistability, a dynamic property that allows the rise of alternate regulatory states from the same transcriptional network. The search yielded a hierarchy of FCTs with various potentials for multistability, including several topologies capable of reaching eight distinct stable states. Our analyses suggested that complete auto-activation is an effective indicator for multistability, and, when gene expression noise was incorporated into the model, the networks were able to transit multiple states spontaneously. Different levels of stochasticity were found to either induce or disrupt random state transitioning with some transitions requiring layovers at one or more intermediate states. Using this framework we simulated a simplified model of induced pluripotency by including constitutive overexpression terms. The corresponding FCT showed random state transitioning from a terminal state to the pluripotent state, with the temporal distribution of this transition matching published experimental data. This work establishes a potential theoretical framework for understanding cell fate determinations by connecting conserved regulatory modules with network dynamics. Our results could also be employed experimentally, using established developmental transcription factors as seeds, to locate cell lineage specification networks by using auto-activation as a cipher.
