Pattern recognition and interpretation in sequence data

Grant number: DP0453249

Abstract

With the recent advances in sequencing technology, the amount of biological sequence data available has increased tremendously. Extraction of knowledge from such data has lagged behind, awaiting the development of new automated methods for extracting meaning from the sequences. This project aims to develop fast and flexible algorithms for discovery of patterns in DNA and protein sequence data and to find families of sequences that share similar patterns. Association of these patterns with features of 3-dimensional structures of protein families and their functional characteristics can contribute towards the understanding of the relationship between primary structure and function of a protein..
