This Wednesday, we invite everyone to attend a workshop of the Data Science and Machine Learning Lab at the Kyiv Academic University.
Rapidly growing data volumes are a typical challenge in many fields. Biology is no exception - the development of new sequencing technologies has created a need to develop efficient algorithms for analyzing large amounts of data. Solutions based on de Bruijn graphs, which provide a compact representation of biological sequences, are becoming increasingly popular. In addition, de Bruijn graphs allow analyzing samples with a large amount of unknown DNA, which is a typical situation for metagenomics, a science that studies microbial populations. The talk will discuss an algorithm for searching and reconstructing sequences encoded in de Bruijn graphs, which provides new opportunities for analyzing large metagenomic datasets.
