Cross Post - Shakespeare and DNA, part II

Hadrian's Wall, 1998

Hadrian's wall. Although Roman, it has about as much to do with Julius Caesar as it does with either Shakespeare, or genome assembly.

Another cross-post to point you over to the Occam's Typewriter Irregulars blog, where I try to explain "genome assembly" the process of putting many fragments of DNA sequence together to make an entire genome sequence. All of this aided by using bits of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.

The post is right here: Genome Assembly - a primer for the Shakespeare fan
