Reading for Bioinformatics 2 (ST590C) ...
 
 

For Friday January 13, read Sections 2.1, 2.2 , and 2.3 (up to "Local Alignment: Smith-Waterman algorithm") from the text by Durbin et al.

For Friday January 20, read Sections 3.1 and 3.2 of text by Durbin et al.

I did not assign reading on dynamic programming variations for sequence alignment but if you want to supplement the lecture material, you can read pages 22-25 ("Local alignment:Smith-Waterman") and pages 29-32 (Section 2.4, "Dynamic programming with more complex models") from text by Durbin et al.

For Friday January 20, read Section 1.3 and Section 3.3.
