Computer Science meets Biology: Models and Algorithms for Understanding Evolution

Dr. Jessica Wu, VisJessica Wuiting Assistant Professor,
Department of Computer Science, Harvey Mudd College

Friday, December 4th
3:30 p.m. (reception)
4:00 p.m. (talk)
Parmly 307

Computational techniques have long been applied to biological data to address a wide range of evolutionary questions.

This talk will focus on the need for accurate, efficient, scalable, and general computational methods for reconstructing gene evolutionary histories. The TreeFix algorithm that combines sequence data and species histories to correct reconstruction errors will be presented along with a demonstration of how the accurate predictions enabled by TreeFix have been used to improve our understanding of evolution.

Students, Faculty/Staff invited to attend!
