Speaker: Fern Hunt
Title: Visualizing the Frequency Patterns of Genomic DNA.
Affiliation: National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Place and Time: Room 101 - Love Building, 3:35-4:35 pm.
Refreshments: Room 204 - Love Building, 3:00 pm.

Abstract. In this talk we will discuss the motivation, features and technical background of a program called GenPatterns. This software brings together a number of tools that can be used to investigate the statistical and complexity properties of DNA sequences. These features are also amenable to visual and graphic display. We will discuss the use of the program to investigate symmetry in the frequencies of subsequences and their inverted complements and we will also talk about the use of the program as an educational resource for teaching undergraduates some basic concepts in bioinformatics.
