Abstract for the talk on 23.11.2016 (14:30 h)Seminar on Non-Linear Algebra
Heather Harrington (University of Oxford, Mathematical Institute)
Algebraic systems biology
In this talk I will discuss how computational algebraic geometry can be useful for studying questions arising in systems biology. In particular I will focus on the problem of comparing models and data through the lens of computational algebraic geometry and statistics. I will provide two concrete examples of biological signalling systems that are better understood with the developed methods.
