In the preceding chapters, we have introduced a great many ideas regarding Markov processes and hidden Markov processes. In the last part of the book, we study ways in which some of these ideas can be applied to problems in computational biology. One of the first observations to be made is that, unlike problems in engineering, problems in computational biology do not always perfectly fit into a nice mathematical framework. Instead, one uses a mathematical framework as a starting point, and makes some modifications to suit the practicalities of biology. Usually, in the process, “rigor” is not always maintained. However,
