Finding new partners in signaling pathways with message-passing algorithms

After a brief introduction to algorithmic complexity and some examples of
graph problems in biology, I will present the formalism and algorithm we
developed for the large-scale reconstruction of a signalling network, based on
protein-protein interaction and transcriptomics data. The model we developed
in consisted in modeling this reconstruction as a combinatorial optimization
problem called the "Prize-collecting Steiner tree problem", and our algorithm,
was applied to the reconstruction of the pheromone pathway in S. cerevisiae,
with results that we were able to verify experimentally.
