Clustering of genomes on the basis of gene order by using adjacency matrices

This project is aimed at devising and implementing an alternative methodology to cluster genomes on the basis of gene order by using adjacency matrices. The methodology was initially designed for circular (mitochondrial) genomes, but it can be easily extended to linear genomes with multiple chromosomes. Implementation of the methodology is being carried out in collaboration with Marc Brooks, an intern recently graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Applied Mathematics.

Resources

The methodology is being implemented as a web server and a standalone program called FIGG. Both resources will be publicly availble soon.
