Robert Palais : Math in Molecular Medicine



Mathematics is being used in many ways to improve the analysis and interpretation of DNA and other molecules that can affect our health. I will describe how math was used to identify genes associated with tumor progression, and to develop methods to identify and quantify genetic variations without expensive and time-consuming sequencing. resulting in a rapid, economical test for transplant compatibility, a cancer therapy, and numerous clinical diagnostic assays. I will also discuss some surprising mathematical connections discovered in the course of this work.
