But working from home isnt all sunshine and daisies,GOF work on any influenza strain and two coronaviruses,MERS and SARS The idea is to provide a year for experts to work out a US government-wide policy for reviewingGOF studies Many researchers have been confused by exactly which viruses and which experiments are covered by the policy said Dennis Dixon a researcher at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) who is leading efforts to implement the policy during an NSABB teleconference today But he said his agency—which funds all the research so far affected by the pause—has been working with researchers to clarify matters For example in letters to scientists officials have made it clear that work involving any kind of influenza virus and not just highly pathogenic strains is potentially covered But the criteria for determining exactly which experiments are GOF and must be put on hold “are much more complex and subtle” he noted and applying them “requires a case-by-case assessment” by a panel of NIAID scientists Scientists are still “sending in the specifics” of their experiments so that the review process “can be done carefully” Dixon said The list of 18 affected projects is not expected to grow or shrink appreciably he noted Dixon also addressed questions about what kinds of research might fall under an exemption to the pause that allows the continuation of studies that address an “urgent” public health need For example he noted that the government is now examining MERS and SARS research that involves infecting mice with modified versions of those viruses because wild-type viruses do not help address the targeted research questions Decisions are expected soon he said That was music to the ears of some NSABB members who said they were pleased the government appeared to be moving to clear up the confusion They also reacted positively to an announcement by Andrew Hebbeler assistant director for biological and chemical threats in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) that officials have posted a new Frequently Asked Questions document aimed at answering scientists’ questions Still several academic researchers called in to the meeting to share their concerns about how the moratorium is unfolding Harvard University epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch who helped push for the moratorium raised questions about how the government is approaching certain studies that could be defined as GOF but don’t appear to be covered by the pause Influenza virologist John Steel of Emory University in Atlanta encouraged federal officials and NSABB members to remember that even though just 18 projects are covered the pause is a big deal to affected researchers In issuing today’s statemnt NSABB "wanted to make sure that we were formally heard" NSABB Chair Samuel Stanley the president of Stony Brook University in New York told ScienceInsider by telephone after the meeting "There should be clear definitions and pathways to exceptions where they are needed We wanted to make clear that there is a sense of urgency These are not the kinds of thing that should be dragging on for months and months" Stanley says the group also wanted to remind government officials "that there are consequences to these actions and to make sure that there aren’t unintended consequences" such as halting work that is important to protecting public health The group is also concerned that younger scientists could be scared away from the fields covered by the moratorium During the teleconference Stanley also announced that his group is making headway on developing the recommendations it will make to the government about GOF policy It has appointed a 13 member working group to develop ideas The group which will meet twice by telephone in December and then face-to-face in January is led by co-chairs Kenneth Berns a microbiologist at the University of Florida and biosafety expert Joseph Kanabrocki of the University of Chicago The group is expected to draw input from a 15 to 16 December meeting on the GOF issue being organized by the National Academies in Washington DC And Stanley said that despite the early confusion about the pause his group is “on schedule” to help the government meet its announced goal of devising a new GOF policy and lifting the funding pause within a year “And we will work very hard to stay on schedule” he added Updated 5:53pm 11/25/2014: The story was updated to include comments from Samuel StanleyWest Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis is hopeful that one of his two senior goalkeepers will be fit for their Premier League trip to Southampton on Saturday File image of Tony Pulis AFP West Brom are facing a potential crisis after back-up Boaz Myhill injured his hamstring in Monday’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City Ben Foster was ruled out of the game at the King Power Stadium after injuring his knee while playing with his son The duo underwent scans and trained with the first team on Thursday but Pulis said he would wait a little longer to decide which of the two will be in goal against Southampton “They will do a little bit more (training) today We hope that one of them will be fit enough to stand but we don’t know which one” Pulis told a news conference on Friday “It is going to be a big 48 hours for us as a team and club in respect to the two goalkeepers” added Pulis whose only other option is 21-year-old Alex Palmer who has not made an appearance for the club yet Striker Hal Robson-Kanu (muscle strain) winger Oliver Burke (hamstring) and midfielder James Morrison (calf strain) will miss the Southampton clash but are in line for a return when league leaders Manchester City visit West Brom next week West Brom 10th in the table with 10 points have conceded nine goals this season – two more than they have scored – and Pulis said that the team had to be more sharp up front and tighter at the back as the season rolls on “As a team we need to score more goals” said Pulis “We’ve looked back on the goals that we’ve conceded It’s been more individual errors than anything else That happens sometimes” Southampton who were held to a 2-2 home draw by Newcastle United in their last game have a similar goal difference and are one spot below West Brom in the table with nine points from eight games It took X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy and a painting algorithm to reveal the hidden portrait of a peasant underneath the painting of Vincent Van Goghs "Patch of Grass” And that feat accomplished in 2008 was just the beginning Art history and mathematics may seem an unlikely combination but math techniques in image analysis is transforming the way art historians and conservationists do their work Algorithms can be used to distinguish copies from originals characterize and quantify the style of one artist in comparison to another and restore cracks and fading "Whats really important to note is that these are all non-invasive techniques" says William Brown chief conservator of the North Carolina Museum of Art who gathered last week in Washington to discuss his work at a panel discussion sponsored by Duke University While many restoration techniques interfere with arts chemical composition the image analysis technique leaves art untouched Signal processing extracts X-ray images of the art allowing it to be viewed in enhanced or altered forms while the original remains "Basically there is a mixture of sources in the artwork and we want to make sense of the mix and which elements are more present than others" says Robert Calderbank director of the Information Initiative at Duke Calderbank likened the technique to the study of skin cancer in which scientists separate different types of melatonin from within the same skin lesion Brown and Ingrid Daubechies professor of mathematics at Duke having been experimenting with the technique since 2011 The two first collaborated to characterize the style of Giotto di Bondones Peruzzi Altarpiece For generations scholars had noted that some of the faces looked much more naturalistic than others suggesting the possibility that different artists perhaps di Bondones apprentices had painted portions of the altarpiece By characterizing combinations such as detail elements of brushstrokes and using charts to visualize information and patterns Brown and Daubechies were able to determine which panels were the ones likely painted by di Bondone and which by his apprentices A restoration of another altarpiece the Ghent Altarpiece made it possible to distinguish once illegibly cracked calligraphy as the text of Thomas Aquinas on the Annunciation Using an image-processing algorithm Brown virtually removed the distortion created by the paintings cradle resulting in an X-ray image of the art sans cradle modification Daubechies is confident that the interdisciplinary work enabled by data can produce what neither mathematics nor art could produce independently "We want to give you a third eye" Daubechies said of entry of mathematics into the art world "Its not competitive" Write to Becca Stanek at [email protected]
