Functional genomics and the forest of life

Pachter, L (UC, Berkeley)
Monday 31 March 2008, 11:30-12:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We will discuss the 0-dimensional statistical problem of alignment, and its relation to the high-dimensional problem of phylogeny. In particular, we will discuss the relevance of the "space of phylogenetic oranges" and its relation to the above problems. We will also discuss "sequence annealing", which is a new alignment strategy based on these ideas.
