Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Protein secondary structure prediction from its amino acid sequence is a well studied computational problem in bioinformatics and data mining, and it is one that an Austin Peay State University computer science faculty member will discuss from his latest research as part of the next Provost Lecture Series at APSU.

Dr. Leong Lee, assistant professor in the APSU Department of Computer Science and Information Technology, will present at 3:00pm, Thursday, November 29th in the Morgan University Center, Room 303. All sessions of the Provost Lecture Series are free and open to the public.

Lee joined APSU in 2011. Prior to APSU, he was a visiting assistant professor of computer science at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Missouri (Missouri University of Science and Technology) in 2010.

He received the B.S. degree from the National University of Singapore, the M.S. degree in information management from the National University of Ireland, Dublin, and the M.S. in computer science from Missouri University of Science and Technology. His research interests include data mining and ontologies with respect to bioinformatics, machine learning algorithms and analysis of large data sets.

In addition, he pursued those interests through interdisciplinary research projects with scientists from various fields such as biology, geography and mathematics.

Other sessions in the Provost Lecture Series also are planned for the academic year. All sessions are from 3:00pm-4:30pm in the MUC, Room 303 and include the following:
