In-class assignments

Lecture 19

Construct a UPGMA tree from this distance matrix. You only need to compute a UPGMA tree from the “simple” tab, don’t worry about the “more-complex” tab.

Lecture 2

GC content

Get started on the GC content homework assignment. You will discuss the project with someone from another discipline in the course (i.e., biology students and CS students will discuss the assignment with one another). You will be put into groups of two to achieve this.

Lecture 3

Decoding a message

We’ll work in groups to decode the meaning of this binary message (the line numbers are not part of the message):

1:  01100010
2:  01101001
3:  01101111
4:  01101001
5:  01101110
6:  01100110
7:  01101111
8:  01110010
9:  01101101
10: 01100001
11: 01110100
12: 01101001
13: 01100011
14: 01110011

Then identify the protein sequence encoded by this DNA message:
