Graph Theory and Biological Networks Tutorial 

Host: University of Tennessee Knoxville 
Sponsor:
National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS)

Date(s): August 16, 2010  August 18, 2010

Abstract/Description:
Objectives: This tutorial invites biologists, mathematicians and computer scientists to learn more about graph theory. Biologists will learn how graph theory can inform their understanding of many common biological patterns that are graphs: pedigrees, fate maps, phylogenetic trees, metabolic pathways, food webs, epidemiological networks, interactomes, etc. as well as how graph theory can be used to design experiments, analyze images, and model complex interactions. Mathematicians and computer scientists will learn how graph theoretical concepts such as interval graphs, planar graphs, trees, networks, Delaunay triangulations, Gabriel graphs, minimal spanning trees, etc. have widespread utility in understanding biological phenomena ranging from molecular to cellular to population levels with ecological and medical applications.
