The CUNY Data Science and Applied Topology Reading Group is joint between the Mathematics and Computer Science programmes. We meet Fridays 11.45 -- 12.45 in GC 3309. You can contact us at cunygc@appliedtopology.nyc.

Our plan is to primarily read and discuss seminal papers in data science, in applied topology and in topological data analysis. Each seminar one participant takes the responsibility to present a paper and prepare items for discussion. We expect occasionally to be able to invite external speakers.

Single cell mapper analysis

Next-generation high-throughput sequencing has generated an explosion of available genomic data. That holds a great potential for exploring biological systems with unprecedented resolution at the single-cell level. However, single-cell sequencing yields complex data output and implies technical challenges to traditional computational methods, which are mostly based on clustering and combinatorics. In this talk we will give a general perspective on the challenges and advances in the field of single-cell and associated data analysis problems. We put special emphasis on topological techniques.
