This blog describes the comings and goings in the Wheeler Lab. I (Travis Wheeler) am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Montana, in Missoula. I am also an Associated Faculty member of the Cellular, Molecular, and Microbial Biology Program

My group develops methods in computational biology, with an emphasis on sequence analysis – (1) development of algorithms that increase the speed and power of homology search using profile hidden Markov models, (2) implementation of those methods in the highly-used HMMER homology search toolkit, and (3) application of these methods to biology-motivated topics, especially those involving transposable elements and regulatory elements.
