“This paper contributed to foundational work of understanding emerging problems in genetics through the computational lens. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most frequent form of human genetic variation. They are of fundamental importance in medical diagnostic, drug design, and are a fingerprint of disease genes. This work studied problems related to computational SNPs validation based on genome assemblies of diploid organisms (those with two copies of each chromosome) and presented both hardness results and efficient algorithms, using graph modeling.”
The events in Iran following the death of Mahsa Amini have been deeply disturbing and added to the concerns for the safety and security of family and friends in Iran. We stand with the voices calling for freedom of intellect and thought and demand the most basic rights. We reiterate the message by Chancellor Khosla and are committed to upholding fundamental human rights. We stand in solidarity against the use of violence, repression, and discrimination.
We are also concerned about the welfare of our community members who are affected by these events. If you are experiencing feelings of grief and anxiety, we encourage you to seek assistance UC San Diego offers for Students via CAPS, and for Faculty and Staff via Faculty and Staff Assistance Program.

In recent weeks, Iran has experienced widespread unrest in cities throughout the country, where protests have erupted following the death of Mahsa Amini. We are deeply saddened by the death of Ms. Amini and the deaths of protesters inside Iran.
UC San Diego is committed to upholding fundamental human rights. We stand in solidarity against the use of violence, repression and discrimination. Our thoughts are with those impacted and with our community members who have connections to the region and who are worried about their families and loved ones.
