Building DNA for Monte Carlo physics simulations

  A large part of my thesis work involves making models of DNA in a computer. The idea is that we make a model of DNA, shoot it with a whole bunch of radiation, and see how many times the DNA breaks. And DNA breaks are worth quantifying as they are one of the origins … Continue reading Building DNA for Monte Carlo physics simulations

More than anyone needs to know about counting bits

I'm meaning to start a series of posts soon about what I'm researching in my PhD soon, but I got distracted this week thinking about a few algorithms I saw to count the number of bits set to one in a given binary number. I'm developing simulations currently looking at DNA damage and I need … Continue reading More than anyone needs to know about counting bits
