Title: Understanding Complex Systems using the Functional Connectome

Speaker: Leighton T. Izu

University of California, Davis


Abstract: A fundamental challenge in biology is determining how parts of a complex system (e.g., a muscle cell or a human) need to be coordinated to produce a given output.  We recently developed a method called the Functional Connectome (FC) that determines this coordination pattern.  The FC exploits the natural substructures inherent in the data that are found from the singular value decomposition of the data matrix.  I’ll illustrate how the FC is found and what we can learn from it using a wine data set and data on cardiac muscle cells from our lab.
