21 Oct 2008--bio-to-CS mapping

Mark Braunstein introduced himself at the start of the meeting. He's here in the College of Computing as a Professor of the Practice to help create a joint School of Biomedical Informatics, between GT's College of Computing and Emory's School of Medicine.

First item to decide in mapping the Biology projects from the last month to CS activities is the language. Any given language has affordances and challenges which will determine the complexity of a given domain project when mapped into that language.

We finally settled on BioPython.

Attached is the document describing our first pass mappings of Biology projects to CS implementations, and how these would play out in an intro course.
