IREAP Graduate Student Seminar
Large Conference Room (1207), Energy Research Facility
"Identifying the Drivers of Cancer in Gene Regulatory Networks"
Advisor: Ed Ott
With the advent of high throughput technologies such as gene microarrays and genome-wide sequencing, it is now possible to measure the activity of every gene in a cancer cell population under different conditions. How to extract important genetic interactions from these experiments remains an outstanding question. Here we present a method to identify such interactions by focusing on the properties of a transcription factor network reconstructed from microarray experiments in Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma.
