  • Data mining: employing QC and DQC to investigate structures of highly complex and noisy data has proved to be very successful. Recently we have tested it on earthquake data, x-ray absorption data of micrometer structures of matter, particle physics data and more.

  • Bioinformatics: characterization of enzymes through specific peptide motifs; functional and evolutional importance of compositional order of proteins; large exact repeats on DNA.
