Systems Biology Approaches to The Study of Neurological Disorders and Somatic Cell Reprogramming

Shin, William Kihoon

This thesis describes the development of an systems biology method to study transcriptional programs that are activated during early and late phases of cell-fusion mediated reprogramming, as well as an implementation of systems-level analysis using reverse-engineered regulatory networks to study CNS disorders like Alcohol Addiction, and neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's Disease (AD), and Parkinson's Disease (PD). The results will show an unprecedented view into the mechanisms underlying complex processes and diseases, and will demonstrate the predictive power of these methodologies that extended far beyond their original contexts.
