|Math Coffee: "Solving NP-Complete Problems using DNA Origami" Linda Kreist ‘11 and Katie Richeson ‘11
When: April 29,
Speaker: Linda Kreist and Katie Richeson, both from the class of 2011Ticket Required: No
The field of biological mathematics and DNA computing is a promising interdisciplinary research field. We have spent the last semester studying the intersections between DNA, Math and Origami and attempting to connect all three areas using concepts of DNA computing. We propose a method grounded in the foundations of DNA origami to solve the NP-complete scramble square problem. Have you ever wondered how a DNA-computer works and why NP-complete problems are highly suitable to be solved by them? If so, come and join us!
We will have our traditional light snacks at 3:45 PM in Math Hall.
