Functional genomics and the forest of life

Date: 
Monday 31st March 2008 - 11:30 to 12:30
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 

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.
