I am recruiting users for the putative genetics library.
We have a few simple examples of gene searching and I am working
on a more complete aligner example and some performance
improvements to the index data structure.
For data, you can obtain the human genome from:
Interesting problems we would like to solve:
Given a 20 character sequence with up to six errors, what is the fastest
way to list all possibilities other than a brute force search (CRISPR).
Can we use JNI to connect the library to Hadoop and other distributed
Can we construct a database of all known viral genomes including
Can we detect variations in MHC VDJ regions within a single sample?
Many other interesting puzzles are there to be found...
