The Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites you to the Lorne Campbell Lectureship. This year, we are delighted to host Olgica Milenkovic from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Title: String reconstruction problems in molecular storage

Abstract: String reconstruction problems frequently arise in many areas of genomic data processing, molecular storage, and synthetic biology. In the most general setting, they may be described as follows: one is given a single or multiple copies of a coded or uncoded string, and the string copies are subsequently subjected to some form of (random) processing such as fragmentation or repeated transmission through a noise-inducing channel. The goal of the reconstruction method is to obtain an exact or approximate version of the string based on the processed outputs. … For complete details visit
