TIC Seminar - Bioinformatic Tests of the Atavistic Model of Oncogenesis

Associate Professor Charles Lineweaver, Planetary Science Institute, Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, ANU   We have proposed a new atavistic model of oncogenesis (Davies & Lineweaver 2011, Lineweaver et al 2015). We have also proposed several ways to test the model. One important test depends on knowing the ages of the ~ 20,000 human genes. I will present the model and the age-dependent test. Then I will describe how some of the bioinformatic obstacles to obtaining gene ages  can be overcome.
