Reconstruction Algorithms for Biological Networks

Objective

We propose to develop reconstruction algorithms for
biological networks. Biological networks such as Phylogenies and
Pedigrees are key components in the mathematical analysis of evolution
and population genetics. Cellular and Metabolic networks are
extensively studied in molecular genetics. We will develop algorithms
for reconstruction of networks from data and study cases where
networks cannot be reconstructed. Our approach is rigorous: we specify
models exactly and give explicit running time, sampling complexity and correctness
guarantees thus laying foundations for more applied work in these
areas.
