Solution for the last homework is posted. See the last 2 pages of the updated slides on Hidden Markov Models. 4/30/03, 9:53 AM
Project due date is changed to May 6th. On May 6th I will
meet each group for 20 minutes during 10 to noon, and 1 to 6 PM.
Today in the class we will draw lots to decide the meeting times.
During the meeting you need to give a demo of your project.
(Bring your laptop.) Besides the demo, make some slides to
present your project. You also
need to bring folder with all your project reports and
presentation slides. In addition
each student should also bring a folder with all the homeworks,
and scribe notes. Before you come to the demo have all your reports
uploaded to your website. You may remove it after the graduation day.
4/30/03, 9:34 AM.
For the Home work due on 4/28, please bring it as hard
copy to the class. DO NOT put it in your web page, as
for this particular HW I donot want any chance of people
copying from others. 4/27/03, 11:22 AM.
For the class on 4/27/03, there is a slight possibility that
I might be a little late as I have an unavoidable
appointment in Phoenix in the morning. Please wait for me. 4/27/03, 11:20 AM.
Hope everyone is making good progress on their
project. If you are facing problems please see
me the coming week (Monday office hours or Friday afternoon).
Don't wait until it is too late.
(Also, I am going over your reports and will send you some
feedback.) 2:20 PM 4/4/03.
3/26/03 10:00 AM. A break down for the first test is posted.
3/10/03 11:20 PM. The class test will be postoned by a week because
of the student presentations delaying the material that I planned to cover
before the test. The date for the next project report will be postponed by
two weeks to 3/26/03.
2/24/03 4:00 PM.In regards to the project report, besides the 3+
pages report, you should also have a project summary of 1/2 a page.
2/24/03 1:05 PM. This is a reminder that each group will present
their proposal in the class on 2/26/03 and 3/3/03. The order of presentation
will be the reverse order of the scribe schedule.
The presentation should be about 5-7 minutes. For your proposal, think of
writing atleast about 3 single spaced pages without counting figures or
2/19/03 1:28 PM. Submission through web links has worked very well.
To simplify the process further, I would like every one to designate a particular
web page for this class. In that page you need to have a list of pointers
to your various homeworks, projects notes, etc. After the due date I will
just go there and retrieve the appropriate documents. This makes things convinient
to you and me.
2/17/03 4:45 PM. Homework, notes by scribes, etc, should be put in
a web page and the URL should be emailed to the TA firstname.lastname@example.org.
2/17/03. 4:45 PM. Some students requested to postpone the HW 3 deadline
to 2/24. Thats fine with me. So the HW 3 deadline is now 2/24. also, the due
date of phase 1 of the project now is 2/26.
2/10/03 11:58 PM. As announced in class: We will not have the Biology
Quiz. HW2 deadline is postponed to Feb 17th. HW 3 due date is Feb 19th.
2/9/03 6:08 PM. You must start forming groups for the project.
In case you have not done so yet, on Monday I will finish 10 minutes
early so that you can talk to your class mates at that time. Individual
projects are fine too. As mentioned earlier, if you have some other project
in mind (besides the one that I have been talking about) then feel
free to bring it up with me.
2/9/03 6:06 PM. For HW2, Q1 the data that is asked for has to
consist of numbers. Pictorial data is not ok.
2/5/03 noon. HW 2 is posted in the Homeworks section. Due: 2/12/03.
2/4/03 12:09 PM. On 2/5/03 I will discuss several CMB databases.
On 2/10/03 I will discuss Pathways. On 2/12/03 we will discuss all aspects
of the projects. Please come prepared that day to ask me questions about
projects. You can ask me all kinds of questions about the projects including
questions like `If xyz would be a good project or not?' etc.
2/4/03 12:08 PM Tomorrow's class will be in GWC 487.
2/3/03 5 PM. Date for quiz: 2/17/02. Will cover material until and
2/3/03 4:15 PM. Change in deadline: First phase of the project due
on 2/24 instead of 2/12.
1/23/03, 5 PM: The Homework question is elaborated.
1/22/03, 5 PM: If you missed the class today, familiarize yourself
with all the information in this web site. In particular, check out the homework.
1/22/03, 5 PM: Please install the CD-ROM that was distributed in
the class and return it to me next class on 1/27/03.
1/22/03, 5 PM: On 1/27/03 we will go over the transcript slides that
I made of the relevant portion of the Roche Genetics CD-ROM.
1/22/03, 5 PM: From the class survey it seems that more than 80%
of the students in the class do not have Biology background beyond high
school. Hence, I am thinking of a quiz worth 10% of the total grade (to come
out of the class test portion) first or second week of February. This quiz
will focus on the biological aspects.
