Comparative Sequence Sizes Yeast chromosome 3 350,000 Escherichia coli (bacterium) genome 4,600,000 Largest yeast chromosome now mapped 5,800,000 Entire yeast genome 15,000,000 Smallest human chromosome (Y) 50,000,000 Largest human chromosome (1) 250,000,000 Entire human genome 3,000,000,000

Low-resolution physical map of chromosome 19

8
Chromosome 19 gene map

9
Computational Gene Prediction Where the genes are unlikely to be located? How do transcription factors know where to bind a region of DNA? Where are the transcription, splicing, and translation start and stop signals? What does coding region do (and non-coding regions do not) ? Can we learn from examples? Does this sequence look familiar?

Scientific Models Mechanistic models Predictive power Elegance Consistency Stochastic models Predictive power Hidden Markov models Mechanism Black box Stochastic mechanism Physical models-- Mathematical models

15
Neural Networks interconnected assembly of simple processing elements (units or nodes) nodes functionality is similar to that of the animal neuron processing ability is stored in the inter-unit connection strengths (weights) weights are obtained by a process of adaptation to, or learning from, a set of training patterns

16
Genetic Algorithms Search or optimization methods using simulated evolution. Population of potential solutions is subjected to natural selection, crossover, and mutation choose initial population evaluate each individual's fitness repeat select individuals to reproduce mate pairs at random apply crossover operator apply mutation operator evaluate each individual's fitness until terminating condition

17
Crossover Child AB Child BA Parent A Parent B crossover point Mutation

18
Markov Model (or Markov Chain) A GA TCT Probability for each character based only on several preceding characters in the sequence # of preceding characters = order of the Markov Model Probability of a sequence P(s) = P[A] P[A,T] P[A,T,C] P[T,C,T] P[C,T,A] P[T,A,G]

19
Hidden Markov Models States -- well defined conditions Edges -- transitions between the states A T C G T A C ATGAC ATTAC ACGAC ACTAC Each transition asigned a probability. Probability of the sequence: single path with the highest probability --- Viterbi path sum of the probabilities over all paths -- Baum-Welch method

20
Hidden Markov Model of Biased Coin Tosses States (S i ): Two Biased Coins {C1, C2} Outputs (O j ): Two Possible Outputs {H, T} p(OutputsO ij ): p(C1, H), p(C1, T), p(C2, H) p(C2, T) Transitions: From State X to Y {A11, A22, A12, A21} p(Initial S i ): p(I, C1), p(I, C2) p(End S i ): p(C1, E), p(C2, E)
