In biology, relationships between species are described using a phylogenetic tree which visually illustrates how species are related to one another. Researchers are continually developing models and computational tools to use molecular sequence data, such as DNA, to find and describe relationships among species. There is a wonderful confluence of mathematical techniques that are used in this research. OSU-Cascades’ mathematician Amelia Taylor will present her recent research using mathematics (representation theory and algebraic geometry) to develop a new technique for building these trees.
