Speaking at the TTIC Workshop on Automated Algorithm Design

I have been asked to give a talk at the Workshop on Automated Algorithm Design being held at the Toyota Technical Institute at Chicago from August 7th to the 9th. I will be speaking about our work related to applying parameter advising to reference-based transcript assembly (see Publications).

While in Chicago, I will also attend the Workshop on Learning-Based Algorithms also being held at TTIC from August 12th to the 14th.

Universal k-mer sets work accepted to ACM-BCB

Our recent work on universal k-mer sets has been accepted as a paper to The 10th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB) in September, being held in Niagara Falls, NY. The work titled “Practical universal k-mer sets for minimizer schemes” is a collaboration with our summer iBRIC student from 2017 Fiyin Gbosibo, Carl Kingsford, and Guillaume Marçais. The preprint is now available (see Publications).
