Title: Aspects of Sequence Analysis to Discover Biological Principles

Abstract: This talk will provide an overview of four projects my group has worked on in the past year. The projects are examples of the kind of work that can be done within bioinformatics. They include identifying spanning sets of oligos across a whole genome while ensuring that all genes are targeted. We will show how to identify species from sequence data and function from sequences. Lastly, we will examine some patterns within DNA sequences and show they affect the patterns of substitutions in DNA sequences
