HW3 (last!) is online

Dear all,

This is the third and last HW assignment for this semester.

It deals with graph theory and digital images.

Since we will soon begin working on the projects, please start working on this HW soon, so you can free you mind (and time) for the projects.

Have a nice weekend,

Second reading assignment + posponing HW2

Dear all,

The second reading assignment is now online.
It is about images processing - a rather fun topic and very useful in biological context.

Due date is 9th of May - class time.

In addition, because HW2 is currently due at a vacation day, it is postponed to a week later, May 9th (23:55).

Good luck,
Amir and Gur

HW1 is online

Dear all,
Please read the instructions on page 1 of the HW carefully.
Students who participated in today's class are exempt from submitting Q3, except for section d. In this section you are required to provide a short discussion on the results we saw in class. I encourage you to play a bit with the code and execute it on additional genes, through which you may get additional insights.
The deadline of HW1 was set to April 11, which is Passover evening, so it is postponed to April 13.
