We have a number of interesting bioinformatics puzzles. They are more biologically oriented, but anyone with knowledge of de Bruijn graphs and computational analysis will find them exciting. These days, many smart computer scientists are into bioinformatics and we are saddened to see so much talent getting wasted in optimizing and benchmarking k-mer counters or aligners.
Please contact us by email, if interested. They are just for fun, but most likely you will be able to write a cool paper after solving them.
We will be away from here for a week, and be busy building our RNAseq blog with cutting-edge information.
Best to all.
