Aaron Streets, Associate Professor, Bioengineering, Computational Biology, and Biophysics, has been named to Popular Science’s Brilliant 10 list. Streets have made fundamental contributions to many fields, including bioengineering, computational biology, and biophysics. Streets contributed to the “Human Cell Atlas”, an international research project to catalog all of the cells found in the human body. Collaborating with Nir Yosef, Associate Professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences, Streets’ lab created totalVI, a computer algorithm that uses deep learning to integrate gene datasets and protein datasets from single cells. His research focused on new technology mapping protein-DNA interactions with single-molecule resolution.
