Church Music History - Afternoon in The Science Basement

Would you like to know what young scientists are up to, and how their research may pertain to you? Would you like to stay up-to-date with the latest scientific advancements? Do you enjoy learning new things?

The Science Basement would like to invite you to listen and interact during an Afternoon in the Science Basement. The first speaker of the monthly Fall series, Samuli Korkalainen, from the University of Helsinki will present their work, ‘Church Music History: How on Earth can it be interesting?

Description: The history of Lutheran Church music is perhaps not the most exciting topic for some. However, it’s much more than just hymn lyrics and melodies. Congregational singing never happens in a vacuum; it’s always influenced by philosophical and theological thoughts, but political ideas and societal changes have an impact on it as well. Interdisciplinary research on 19th-century Finnish church music thus opens a broad perspective on people’s everyday life in their own localities, and on pan-European flows that also reached the far North two hundred years ago.

Special seminar Dr Marieke Kuijjer: Modeling gene regulatory network rewiring in cancer

The biological state of the cell is characterized by a complex network of interacting genes, proteins, microRNAs, as well as other molecules. Gene regulatory network reconstruction algorithms estimate the likelihood of these molecular interactions by drawing on large numbers of expression data to model an "aggregate" network. However, while informative in highlighting overall differences between two or more conditions, aggregate network models fail to capture the heterogeneity represented in a disease population. I will present different gene regulatory network reconstruction algorithms to model transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation. I will then introduce a computational framework for single-sample network reconstruction that allows us to “extract” individual patient networks from aggregate networks. I will demonstrate the strengths of these methods in multiple datasets and will highlight newly identified gene regulatory interactions that play a role in cancer.
