Greater Rates of Mitochondrial Mutations Discovered in Children Born to Older Mothers
Statististicians participate in a large study of mutations in mitochondrial DNA. A multidisciplinary Penn State and UC Berkley team including researchers in genomics, bioinformatics, medical sciences, forensic sciences and statistics produced and analyzed breakthrough data on mutations that accrue as human mitochondria are passed from mothers to children. These mutations are involved in a large number of diseases. The findings that mitochondrial DNA molecules undergo a small bottleneck, and that mutations are more common in children of older mothers, are therefore critical for genetic counseling.

SAMSI Poised to Help Hone Gravitational Wave Astronomy, Astronomers' New Sense
SAMSI is poised to help astronomers hone their new sense. In November 2014, SAMSI sought input from the astronomical community for a year-long program that would gather astronomers, statisticians, and applied mathematicians to address challenging interdisciplinary problems in astronomy. Led by statistician G. Jogesh Babu (Penn. State University), a team of scientists identified a set of timely and compelling research directions, under the overarching and overlapping themes of time-domain astronomy and survey-based astronomy.
