Title: Sequence Alignment of Proteins and DNA Sequences

Abstract: Bioinformatics is a study of problems related to storage, retreival and analysis of information about the sequence, structure and function of biological sequences.

In this talk, I will present algorithms and tools for sequence alignment, a central topic in bioinformatics that is key to understanding the evolutionary relationships among various protein sequences, and also for sequencing and retreiving biological sequences like DNA, m-RNA and proteins.

In this talk, I will attempt to overview Algorithms for pairwise sequence alignment and multiple sequence alignment.
