Speaker: Dr. Ben Calderhead, Imperial College London Title: "Quasi Markov Chain Monte Carlo Methods" Abstract: Generalised Metropolis-Hastings is a Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method that was introduced to allow for parallelisation by proposing multiple samples in each iteration, such that the stationary distribution is still the correct target density.  In this more recent work, we prove that the consistency property still holds true when the driving sequence of pseudo-random numbers is replaced by completely uniformly distributed (c.u.d.) numbers.  In essence this allows…

Speaker: Dr. Simon Rogers, University of Glasgow Title: "Unsupervised substructure discovery in mass spectrometry metabolomics data" Abstract: Identification of molecules observed in data derived from mass spectrometry experiments remains is very difficult, and hinders the wider application of high throughput untargeted metabolomics. The standard analysis pipelines compare observed spectra with databases of known molecules, but these databases have very low coverage resulting in the majority of the measured molecules being unidentified. Here, I will present an alternative approach for exploring datasets from untargeted…
