Hello and welcome!

This is the webspace of PhD unextraordinaire Adam Sardar. Using the catergory links to the right you can find articles relating to both:

i.) My blog: This mostly consists of tid-bits of science that I find interesting enough to write about. Think of it like science tapas.

ii.) My current work and research: This is largely based on computational molecular biology (my PhD topic area), but there are a few articles relating to some small mini-projects that I just fancied studying.

Optimisation Techniques

The featured image is from a little experiment that NASA ran. They tried to write a micro-genetic algorithm that would create an antennae for a particular function on a probe. They got the mess above. BUT, when they made the thing and tried it ...

Morphogenesis Undergrad Masters Project

I just thought that it might be an idea to pop my undergrad final-year project up online. This was the project that eventually led me to join the Bistol Centre for Complexity Sciences, spark my interest in mechanisms that provide ...

Parsing a Newick Tree Using Perl Regex

Parsing a Newick Tree Using Perl Regex

A newick tree is a way of representing a tree, with branch lengths and internal node names, as a single string. An example is: (A:0.1,B:0.2,(C:0.3,D:0.4):0.5); Which would correspond to the tree below (notice how the braces show the groupings of nodes and the colons ...

Quantum Teleportation: Faster Than Light Transfer Of Information?

Quantum Teleportation: Faster Than Light Transfer Of Information?

Even thought I work in Molecular Biology, I nominally sit in a computer science department. As a consequence, those of us in our group occasionally have the pretence (rightly or wrongly) of being computer scientists and debating questions more fundamental to that ...

There are all kinds of interesting questions that come from a knowledge of science, which only adds to the excitement and mystery and awe of a flower. It only adds. I don’t understand how it subtracts.” – Richard Feynman
