Office hours If you are registered for this course, please fill out this doodle poll with conflict-free slots in your schedule.

Our goal is to choose times so that so that for every student, there is at least one office hour that does not conflict with another activity. To help us find times that work for everyone, please list all of the times that are conflict-free for you, not just the time you like best.

Course Summary

An advanced introduction to computational molecular biology, using an applied algorithms approach. The course will survey established algorithmic methods, including pairwise sequence alignment and dynamic programming, multiple sequence alignment, fast database search heuristics, hidden Markov models for molecular motifs, phylogeny reconstruction and gene finding. We will explore emerging computational problems in genomics through special topics lectures and literature assignments in 02/3-711/15-856.     Course numbers demystified.
