Recomb 2001 Doubles in Size; Attendees Take On Molecular Biology s Emerging Questions | GenomeWeb

While delivering his paper on normalized sequence alignment at Recomb 2001, Pavel Pevzner noted that Temple Smith and Michael Waterman were not the first to address the problem of sequence alignment, but they were the first to “get the question right” in order to resolve it with their famous algorithm.

Computational biologists working on the next generation of algorithms will have no shortage of questions to ask, it seems, as Recomb’s invited speakers encouraged attendees to apply computational approaches to a growing number of emerging biological challenges.
