SIMS Tutorial: Mathematical Sciences in Genomic Analysis
The Societal Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (SIMS) will conduct a
three week tutorial on the Mathematical Sciences in Genomic Analysis. The
tutorial will demonstrate how mathematical and computational methods are used
in genomic analysis - particularly in connection with the Human Genome
Project. Tutorial topics will include fragment assembly, informatics, pattern
analysis of molecular sequences, and DNA and protein structure prediction.
Background lectures will prepare Tutorial participants for the later
presentations of senior Tutorial Faculty. This tutorial is intended for
advanced undergraduates, graduate students and post-doctorals in the
biological and mathematical sciences. Applications for this SIMS Tutorial
are encouraged from all interested individuals. This Tutorial will be held
July 26 - August 15, 1992, at Rutgers University. Cosponsor of this
Tutorial is DIMACS, the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Computer Science,
Serving on the faculty is an outstanding group of scientists who will present
many of the exciting interdisciplinary research activities central to genomic
