Topology is considered to be one of the more pure (and perhaps? less useful) subjects in mathematics. However, the last two decades have seen a surge in research in applied topology, where topological tools have been employed to solve problems in image processing, dynamical systems, neuroscience, and virus evolution. In this talk, we will give a very basic introduction to a few topological tools and how some of them can be used to analyze genomic data of breast cancer.
