Hi All,

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
seach systems?

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...
