 A needle in a haystack – computer science at the service of (meta) genomics

Noam Shental – OU

This talk presents several examples how group testing and compressed sensing assist in addressing practical problems in genomics and metagenomics. I will describe a method for efficient screening of large populations for carriers of either de novo or known rare mutations. In the context of metagenomics, I will describe a method for efficiently creating a library of all bacteria in a certain niche.
