The course is meant as a gentle introduction to the field
of Computational Molecular Biology.
A follow up course, held by Giuseppe Lancia,
will touch upon more advanced
research topics in Algorithms
and Discrete Mathematics for Molecular Biology.
The main aims of the course,
in order of priority, are:
- Introduce to the field of Computational Molecular Biology;
- Elucidate the role of algorithms
in the current practice of the research
in Molecular Biology;
- Motivate the study of Algorithms
and Discrete Mathematics techniques
with applications in Molecular Biology;
- Serve as a pre-course to the course of Giuseppe.
During his course, Giuseppe will propose us
open problems in the field as they are felt relevant
by the main groups and companies working on the edge
of present research.
Giuseppe is a part-time researcher at Padua University
(in the group of Apostolico) and partially works
at Celera Genomix.
