Algorithms in Genome Research

392109/10 Stoye Fr 8:45-10:15/Fr 10:15-11:45 in U10-146


This class covers the basic algorithmic techniques used in the computational analysis of genome and post-genome data. This includes algorithms for genomic mapping and assembly, methods for functional genome annotation (gene finding and gene function prediction), algorithms for the analysis of DNA microarrays and mass spectra, methods and models for protein structure prediction, and algorithms for comparative genomics.


The page AlgGRLiterature contains many links to the original literature.
