#Haplotype Assembly ￼￼￼Haplotype information is needed for many biological purposes such as predicting diseases, determining ancestry, predicting susceptibility to medicine, and inferring family relationships. This information can be read from our DNA by machines, but these machines only produce short reads of the DNA rather than an entire haplotype. Furthermore, we are unsure which haplotype (of the two in humans) a particular read originated from. The purpose of this project is to reassemble haplotypes from ambiguous read data in an accurate and efficient manner.
