Topological Data Analysis for Genomics and Applications to Cancer (Course)


This course aims to illustrate how fundamentals of toplogical data analysis (TDA) are applied to important research problems in computational biology. We will present the theoretical foundations of TDA and genomics, and provide real research case studies of the successful application of TDA to solve problems in cancer genomics and RNA viral evolution.
