Speaker: 

Mike Waterman (University of Southern California)

The purpose of these lectures is to give a quick, but rigorous introduction to the most fundamental and general algorithmic techniques that arise in biological  sequence analysis, and to review open problems in the probability of sequence alignment. Some specific computer programs or services might be mentioned in passing, but the lectures are not intended to give advice on current computer programs. 

This second mini course will cover key open problems in probability and statistics for sequence alignment.

The first session of this mini course will take place on Tuesday, January 19 from 9:30 am – 10:30 am; the third session of this mini course will take place on Tuesday, January 19 from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm; the fourth session of this mini course will take place on Tuesday, January 19 from 3:00 pm am – 4:00 pm.
