Abstract: In this talk, I will present our collaborative work with our medical school in applying network science and heuristic optimisation techniques to understand the molecular mechanisms of cancer. I will introduce Disease Module Extraction (DIME), a new network analysis algorithm developed in my group, and its application to the understanding the molecular mechanisms of glioma progression.
