Events for 6 November 2017

Joanne Knight: Explorations of the immune hypothesis of schizophrenia using GWAS data

12:00am, CM221

I discuss the exploration of this hypothesis describing work that investigates the following three topics.
1. The nature of the association to the histo compatibility locus (HLA) on chromosome 6.
2. The genetic overlap between schizophrenia and other immune disorders.
3. The association with schizophrenia with genetic variation in immune genes.
I will provide background information about genetic data and studies to contextualise the statistical methods used this work.

Karin Baur : Polygon tilings - strand diagrams, permutations and associahedra

4:00pm, CM219

Alternating strand diagrams have been introduced by Postnikov in the study of total positivity, Scott has used such diagrams to exhibit a cluster structure on the Grassmannian. In work with P. Martin, we generalised Scott‘s construction to the whole associahedron and have a partial result on counting polygon tilings up to flip eqivalence. We recently found a general formula which can be viewed as a Euler-Poincaré formula for the associahedron.
