Hong Qin, UTC Computer Science: "Applying network theories in biology: From systems
biology to precision medicine"
Many challenges in biology and medicine as caused by complex networks. I will present my own network research in systems biology, genomics, and precision medicine. One focus of my research is cellular aging, and I will show how probabilistic gene network models can be used to infer gene network changes during the aging process. I will also discuss ongoing research projects in my group using network approach to tackle problems in genomics and precision medicine.
