I will be presenting our work on generating universal sets for large k-mers, “Practical universal k-mer sets for minimizer schemes” with Fiyin Gbosibo, Carl Kingsford, and Guillaume Marçais, as a poster at ISMB/ECCB 2019 in Basel in July. The preprint is now available (see Publications).
Kwanho Kim, who I have been working with since 2017, graduated today with his Masters of Science in Computational Biology. He successfully defended his thesis titled “Analyzing the influence of assessment metrics on automated transcript assembly parameter selection” on April 30 and will be starting a position at The Broad Institute this summer. Congratulations Kwanho!
