**General rule:**I recognize that computational biology is an inherently collaborative activity and I encourage you to work with your classmates on the homework assignments. You may also ask me questions. Please make sure that whatever you turn in reflects your own understanding of the material and your own work, however.

If students submit answers that are identical to another students' answers or those from previous years, the work will be graded and the score from the suspect answer will be split among participating students.

Homework scores comprise 80% of your final grade.

The remaining 20% of your grade comes from a written project, due on December 19.

Homework 1 is due November 14 and can be found here.

Homework 2 is due November 30 and can be found here.

Homework 3 is due December 19 and can be found here.

The final project is due December 19 and can be found here.
