Combinatorics is a branch of mathematics concerning the study of finite or countable discrete structures. It finds applications in various domains. In particular, due to advances in biotechnology, applications in biology and medical research have increased, many of which arose from the study of bio-molecular sequences and their interaction. This program aims to investigate the combinatorial problems in strings and graphs and their applications in biological science, hoping to explore new ideas and techniques in analyzing these big datasets.
