CSCE 496/896 (Fall 2002) Project Ideas

From the syllabus:

In this course you will do a substantial project. This project can be: (1) a very extensive literature search and summary on a particular topic, (2) a good implementation and evaluation of a known result in computational biology, or (3) a small (but nontrivial) amount of original research related to bioinformatics. You may work on these projects individually or in groups. Later this semester I will set a deadline for submission of 1-3 paragraph proposals on your projects. You must do this in order to get full credit for your project, and you must get my approval on it before starting work on your project.

You will summarize your project results in a written report and an oral presentation. If your project involves an implementation, then you may be asked to also give a brief demonstration. The written report must use a professional writing style similar to that found in an ACM or IEEE journal, including abstract, introduction, summary of related work, your contribution, references, and an appendix (if necessary). The oral presentation will be to the entire class at the end of the semester: during dead week (December 9-13), and if necessary, during the week prior to dead week (December 2-6). You will submit your written report to me no later than December 13 (the last day of dead week) December 15 at 11:59:59pm. In accordance with UNL dead week policies, you have now been informed in writing of the nature and scope of this project prior to the eighth week of classes.

Suggestions for projects can be found below, but you may propose your own topic as well. You must receive my approval on your topic before proceeding with your work! To be a valid topic, it must go beyond the scope of the course. So your project could be on a topic we did not cover in class at all, or could more deeply explore a topic we covered in class.
