Some recent research papers in Computational Biology

Below is a selection of Computational Biology conference and journal papers from the past few years. Most of these papers focus on interesting computational and learning techniques for biological data rather than specific biological problems. For your project, you can lean more towards interesting biological applications or towards developing computational methods, as you prefer. In a few of the papers below, fairly elaborate (and non-public) software is used to obtain the results -- you will not be able to reproduce these efforts in the time given for the project! However, you may be able to extract smaller projects from ideas in these papers or develop a simpler prototype for some of the methods.
