Biocomputational puzzles: Data, algorithms, and visualization

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

I solve puzzles for a living. Over the last few years, I've tried to make this activity useful to biologists and scientists in general. This talk will give an overview of some of those attempts, involving the use of combinatorial design to reduce the size of experimental search spaces, visualization of experimental data, and biochemical calculations using DNA. I will attempt to convey the ideas and show the tools rather than focus on mathematical details.
