@shoeberto wasn't there a comp sci professor at uark working on chicken genetics research? Do you remember his name?

@rubah uhhh... not specifically. We had the Tyson school of whatever, which involved some sort of chicken/ag stuff I think? I remember going to a talk at the building once. And I remember a CS prof who taught a course on genetic algorithms independent of that. That's all that comes to mind immediately.

Do you have any more context? tbh I don't think I could tell you any of my CS profs areas of research from back then, just coursework.

@shoeberto I don't remember any more other than we thought it was hilarious back then that comp sci guy would be doing genetics. I'll just assume it was mr. dr. gauch

@rubah
Was this before bioinformatics got big? When I first heard you could do biology with computers my head went boom in hs
@shoeberto

@krzyzis @rubah I think so... actually I remember first learning of bioinformatics at U of A from either another student or a prof. This would have been maybe 2007/8? That's probably who this prof was, but I'm just not remembering.
