Title

Network Reconstruction for Biochemical Reaction Networks

Abstract

The goal of systems biology is to describe biochemical mechanisms explaining the behavior of a particular biological system.
One tool that can be used to do this is network reconstruction. The network reconstruction problem attempts to discover the causal structure and dynamics of a networked system from input output data.  This talk describes our work formulating the network reconstruction problem for biochemical reaction networks, and how analyzing the solution to such problems leads to strong identifiability conditions that help design experimental protocols leading to informative data.
