An interdisciplinary team of researchers at Texas A&M University has been awarded a Division of Computing and Communication Foundations grant by the National Science Foundation to develop a gut-microbial investigation model that can identify critical dietary risk factors that cause colorectal cancer. The three-year, $350,000 project is a direct outcome of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s Interdisciplinary Seed Grants for Strategic Initiatives, which provided initial funding to establish the collaborative research effort.

Reliable storage in the age of big data

Most people might think of computer storage, like an external hard drive or flash drive, as something static that you can leave sitting somewhere indefinitely without issue. In reality, that’s not the case. For instance, data is stored in flash drives by capturing electrons in cells, and over time those electrons can escape for a variety of reasons, creating errors in the data or corrupting the data altogether. Dr. Anxiao (Andrew) Jiang, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, said even the ambient room temperature can affect data storage.
