Who's closest to the correct number of sweets in a jar - an individual guess or the average of many individuals' guesses? Which average?
Can you suggest a curve to fit some experimental data? Can you work out where the data might have come from?
The human genome is represented by a string of around 3 billion letters. To deal with such large numbers, genome sequencing relies on clever algorithms. This article investigates.
