A new mathematical language for biological networks

New mathematical model of genetic interaction identifies master regulators in biological networks

A team of researchers around Berlin mathematics professor Michael Joswig is presenting a novel concept for the mathematical modeling of genetic interactions in biological systems. Collaborating with biologists from ETH Zurich and Carnegy Science (USA), the team has successfully identified master regulators within the context of an entire genetic network. The research results provide a coherent theoretical framework for analyzing biological networks and have been published in the „Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences“ (PNAS).
