A common theme in our research is deriving long-range computational
problems in the process helping our colleagues with their short-term
bioinformatics needs. Most of this work centers on non-model
organism "draft" sequences that are likely to never be finished
(e.g., Anise swallowtail, shown on left). We are also currently developing tools
and software systems for fragmented assemblies, especially
those derived from ecological samples, which are made available here. Our work is largely externally funded by
multiple awards from the National Institutes of Health.
