Agenda

June 22 | 10 - 11:30 a.m. ET
Talk Title: Introducing Tristance: A Striking Discovery in the Mathematical Biocomplexity of Genomic Surveillance

Abstract: Based on a recent paper in the Journal of Computational Biology, our speakers will walk you through a novel approach in genomic sequencing and feedback loops that may provide a paradigm shift in real-time genomic monitoring of pathogens such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its mutations. To understand the feedback loop we must fundamentally reframe current approaches to genetic data, moving away from a pair of sequences to a triple of sequences or what they’ve introduced as, Tristance: A higher dimensional metric to real-time genomic surveillance of pathogenic evolution. Please join us for this interesting talk.
