About juliaudell

My research interests consist primarily of bioinformatics. Currently I'm trying to find structure in gene sequencing data for a highly variable and mysterious gene that plays a major role in the immune system. I have a soft spot for combinatorics and I love finding new and interesting applications of it in the world around us. When I'm not working or studying, I can be found listening to music while playing in the garden or kitchen. I love trying flavorful new recipes so send your favorites my way.

  1. Thank you Julia! This is very helpful (if a bit long. :))
    I will say more about tensor products on Thursday. In the meantime, you might want to check this out:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tensor_product#Characterization_by_a_universal_property
    This universal property is extremely useful for proving things about tensor products. I will discuss this in class and give examples.
