I will talk about the recent works of my group on the area of computational systems biology or data-driven mathematical biology, in particular, for nonlinear dynamical analysis and the statistical analysis on complex diseases. It includes, (1) edge biomarker, network biomarker, and further dynamic network biomarker for detecting the tipping points of complex diseases; (2) network inference by sample-based data, and network reconstruction by time-series data; (3) causality inference based on statistical dependency, and causality detection based on dynamical systems.
