Room changed

3.5 billion “letters” describe the human genome. The first task was to sequence such a genome, then there’s a job for the computer scientists. The CL seems to have dropped the course on bioinformatics, so I shall be giving a short introduction about the power and uses of bioinformatics, algorithms for analysing genomes, comparing genomes and aligning gene sequences. I shall be exploring the efforts of online genome databases and existing tools, describe mathematical models for representing gene sequences, such as with Markov Models, and how this is being used.
