Undergraduate

Research Experience

Since 2008, 40 undergraduate students have participated in lab research activities as lab assistants. We actively recruit (see EmploymentOpportunities) eager undergraduate students both at UofL and from nearby universities and colleges that want to learn about and actively participate in computationally-based scientific research. Dr. Hunter Moseley has been actively involved in 5 different summer undergraduate research programs including the Chemistry & Structural Biology Research Experiences for Undergraduates (CSB-REU) hosted by the UofL Chemistry Department and the UofL Undergraduate Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP).

Scientific Community

Software

One of the main research goals of this laboratory is the development of broadly useful scientific software that is made available to users for download or via a web interface.
  • Available software available under SoftwareDevelopment.
  • While at Rutgers University, Dr. Hunter Moseley developed the Assignment Validation Suite (AVS) for validating protein resonance assignments. AVS was the first outside assignment validation tool adopted by the Biological Magnetic Resonance Bank (BMRB), which they use on all submitted entries. Dr. Hunter Moseley still maintains AVS for the BMRB.

Blogs

Dr. Robert Flight maintains a web-blog that is used to interact with the wider scientific community and the public about scientific research, as well as writing tutorials about specific programming tasks that may be useful to others.
