Jerzy W Jaromczyk

JaromczykAssociate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies

Ph.D. Warsaw University, 1984

Research Areas:

Algorithms, Robust Implementations, Biomedical and Bioinformatics Algorithms and Applications, Research in Computing for the Humanities (Digital Libraries).

Highlights:

As Coach of the UK Entry in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, took the team of the World Finals in Harbin, China.

Current Project:

Developing algorithms and techniques for the Epichloe festucae genome project (joint with plan pathology).  Epichloe festucae is a bioprotective, seed-transmissible symbiont (endophyte) of the so-called cool-season grasses.  They are known for production of various alkaloids, some of which protect against insects, and others that can cause episodes of livestock toxicosis.  Strains lacking the anti-vertebrate activities greatly enhance productivity of forage grasses.  Molecular biological techniques have been useful for studying how E. festucae and its hosts get along so well in nature.
