Math/Stat Colloquium: "Discrete and Algebraic Approaches to Evolutionary Biology; Graphs, Polytopes and Groebner Bases"
Gray Hall, Bentley Meeting Room
Kristina Crona (American University) Discrete mathematics is important for analyzing DNA sequencing data and genotype specific measurements. Algebraic methods can be used for investigating discrete objects. We will discuss epistasis (gene interactions) and genetic recombination, and briefly relate to some classical paradoxes in biology, as well as medical applications. Graphs and polytopes are ...more
