Sorin Istrail Receives NSF Grant For Haplotype Reconstruction Algorithms


Sorin Istrail  has received funding for the NSF grant “Genome-Wide Algorithms for Haplotype Reconstruction and Beyond: A Combined Haplotype Assembly and Identical-by-Descent Tracts Approach”. Human genomes are diploids, which means that each human has two haplotypes, one inherited from the mother and one inherited by the father; each haplotype is a …
