This thesis describes work carried out between may 2006 and december 2009 under the supervision of dr jyoti limited to computational predictions and transcript-level experimental evidence, hence translation cannot enables them to build protein expression landscapes of any biological material (foster et al, 2006. The doctoral program in bioinformatics and computational biology focuses more on statistical analysis than is typical in a bioinformatics program. Our researchers work on core computational biology-related problems, including genomics, proteomics, metagenomics, and phylogenomics we develop novel techniques that combine ideas from mathematics, computer science, probability, statistics, and physics, and we help identify and formalize computational.
