When I tell people that my research is about game theory application in road-bridge transportation network.

Multi-Drug Resistance in Cancer: Data Analysis for P-glycoprotein Inhibition

Drug efflux and P-glycoprotein Over time, cancerous cells have the ability to become resistant to treatments such as chemotherapy through several mechanisms. One of them is drug efflux, an otherwise useful body mechanism that protects normal cells by ensuring the intracellular drug concentration stays below a cell-killing threshold. Drug efflux is possible thanks to proteins… Read More »

NSGA-II explained!

Non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm II (NSGA-II) In this post, I will attempt to explain some basic ideas of multi-objective optimization and the non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm II (known as NSGA-II to it’s friends).  I will also provide an example in Python using the library “inspyred”. But first let’s talk multiple objectives… Multi-objective optimization problems deals… Read More »
