Integrative Bioinformatics 6

Modelling Strings

Today we have a hands on tutorial on modelling strings and how you can use them to represent and/or retrieve structured information. This will be a class on menial Bioinformatics.

Modelling strings relies heavily on regular expressions. Spend some time getting familiar with the concepts of patterning, lazy and greedy quantifiers and tokens. Try the regexp function with all 5 output arguments to see what is there.
