Formal Grammars

Throughout the course of my PhD I have found it useful to write summaries of the various aspects of phylogenetics and biology that I have learned. That these will be useful to others is perhaps a vain hope, in both senses of the word, but I thought I might as well publish some of them on my blog.

Formal grammars are an extremely useful tool for conceptualising and analysing nucelotide sequences, and I have briefly summarised the topic, with an example of their application in the modelling of RNA structure. The summary includes some figures which make for somewhat awkward reading in blog format, so I’ve made it available as a pdf pdf.
