Computational Pangenomics

M.Sc. Tizian Schulz
Seminar: Wednesday, 10.15-11.45 in U10-146
Office hours: by arrangement
Office: U10-141


Based on original research papers, the participants will give oral presentations (20-45 min, optimally about 25 min's) and write short summaries (ca. 5 pages), both in English, about current algorithmic problems in computational pangenomics and their solutions. Deadline for the written summary is one week after the presentation.
