Title: Affine symmetric groups, coloured diagram algebras and bacterial genome evolution

Abstract:

The inversion process in bacteria arises through the same biological process as knotting, and yet their modelling has been done with totally disjoint toolkits. In this talk I will report on some recent work modelling the inversion process with affine symmetric groups, and briefly report on our progress towards a unified algebraic framework for the biology using coloured diagram algebras.
