RESEARCH ABSTRACT SUMMARY:
Philip Green develops mathematical, statistical, and computer methods for analyzing the genomes of humans and other organisms. He has written a number of software packages that are widely used in the Human Genome Project. Green's programs have been used to process and assemble DNA sequencing data, make the genetic maps that are used to localize the genes for genetic diseases, and identify genes and other biological features in the genome sequence.
