My primary interest is sequence alignment with particular attention to the problem of aligning biological sequences.

I am currently working on the problem of predicting the exon-intron structure of a gene and its alternative transcripts. Alternative splicing is a fundamental mechanism of protein differentiation in eukaryotic organisms.

I have been working on the design and implementation of a software tool (ASPIC, Alternative Splicing PredICtion) that predicts the exon-intron structure of a gene from a set of ESTs (Expressed Sequence Tags) aligned to a genomic sequence.
