The course is meant as an introduction to the field
of Computational Molecular Biology
and as an opportunity
to get in touch with the very spirit
and the methods in Algorithms
and Combinatorial Optimization.
The main aims of the course,
in order of priority, are:
- Motivate the study of Algorithms
and Discrete Mathematics techniques
with applications in Molecular Biology;
- Elucidate the role of algorithms
in the current practice and research
in Molecular Biology.
