Project Start Date:

Project End Date:

7/24/2019

Project Description:

This project blends computer science, math, biology, and chemistry. The Best and Krueger groups (and others) have been compiling a large multi-year dataset that includes DNA sequences for many thousands of microbes in each of many hundreds of samples acquired under a variety of environmental conditions. We hope to understand how the variation in the different microbial species that are present and their relative abundance depends on environmental conditions and other factors. To accomplish this we will apply sophisticated computational methods (e.g. machine learning) to the data.
