Abstract/Media

Although knots have been used since the dawn of humanity, the mathematical study of knots is only a little over 100 years old. Not only has knot theory grown theoretically, the fields of physics, chemistry and molecular biology have provided many applications of mathematical knots. In this talk, I provide an overview of some connections between knot theory and DNA-protein interaction, outlining specifics of the biological mechanisms of DNA replication while providing an overview of related knot invariants.
