Bioinformatics Research Group
The Bioinformatics Group aims to develop new algorithms and applications to advance research in the biological sciences. Current projects include an algorithm for aligning sequences using minimum description length; phylogenetic inference using varying rates of evolution, with application to ancestral sequence reconstruction; and methods to support a variety of projects that use next generation short-read sequence data.
Members of the group include students and research associates from the Computer and Information Science department, many of whom work with affiliated groups in the Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, the Institute of Neuroscience, and the Institute of Molecular Biology.
