Computational Biology Seminar: Dr. Chris Cotsapas, "Combining Genetics and Genomics to Gain Biological Insights"

Seminar | January 29 | 1-2 p.m. | 177 Stanley Hall


Dr. Chris Cotsapas, Department of Neurology, Yale School of Medicine

Center for Computational Biology


As genetic and genomic studies become routine, new approaches are required to wrest biological insights from these data. These approaches must address the multifactorial nature of complex traits, the gene regulatory effects likely driving much of that architecture, and recognize that mechanisms can be used in multiple cell types across many contexts.

Caroline Uhler, Institute of Science and Technology, Austria

Department of Mathematics


Although the genetic information in each cell within an organism is identical, gene expression varies widely between different cell types. The quest to understand this phenomenon has led to many interesting mathematics problems. First, I will present a new method for learning gene regulatory networks. It overcomes the limitations of existing algorithms for learning directed graphs and is based on...   More >
