Co-supervisor: Dr F Leung Description:

Genome Mining:

In response to the deluge of the human genome data, my laboratory has developed an interactive graphic interface program. A prototype program for visualising the completed bacterial genome has been developed. Couple project students are needed to further develop this program and use it for genome mining.


One project student is needed to rewrite and further developed DNA Simdex. Simdex is a Window program that uses sophisticated image-analysis techniques to automatically locate bands on DNA fingerprinting electrophoresis gel images and calculate similarity indexes.
