Anaylsing selenocysteine sentence reuse and flow.

Our interest was mainly due to it being present in two entries in different interconnected groups. In that blog entry we looked at the similarities (or lack of) between […]

Continuing with my adding of content to my website, I added my undergraduate dissertation project earlier today. My project, titled “Animating String Searching Algorithms”, looked at building a teaching tool for string searching algorithms. The development of the tool was done in Java and as a couple of years have now passed since I created […]
