This course discusses advanced statistical computing methods used in modern scientic investigation focusing
on computational biology applications. We will discuss applications in genomics and computational biology,
including dynamic programming, hidden Markov models, multiple sequence alignment, phylogenetic recon-
struction, protein structure prediction, gene regulatory network discovery and analysis of high-throughput
array and sequencing data. Methodological topics include combinatorial optimization, the EM algorithm,
importance sampling, Gibbs sampling, Metropolis-Hastings and data augmentation algorithms, auxiliary
variable methods, and population-based Monte Carlo.
