    • Effect of Correlations on Network Controllability 

      Pósfai, Márton; Liu, Yang-Yu; Slotine, Jean-Jacques; Barabasi, Albert-Laszio (Nature Publishing Group, 2013)
      A dynamical system is controllable if by imposing appropriate external signals on a subset of its nodes, it can be driven from any initial state to any desired state in finite time. Here we study the impact of various ...
    • Intrinsic dynamics induce global symmetry in network controllability 

      Zhao, Chen; Wang, Wen-Xu; Liu, Yang-Yu; Slotine, Jean-Jacques (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
      Controlling complex networked systems to desired states is a key research goal in contemporary science. Despite recent advances in studying the impact of network topology on controllability, a comprehensive understanding ...
    • Longitudinal Prediction of the Infant Gut Microbiome with Dynamic Bayesian Networks 

      McGeachie, Michael John; Sordillo, Joanne; Gibson, Travis Eli; Weinstock, George M.; Liu, Yang-Yu; Gold, Diane R.; Weiss, Scott Tillman; Litonjua, Augusto (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      Sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene allows comprehensive assessment of bacterial community composition from human body sites. Previously published and publicly accessible data on 58 preterm infants in the Neonatal Intensive ...
    • On the Origins and Control of Community Types in the Human Microbiome 

      Gibson, Travis E.; Bashan, Amir; Cao, Hong-Tai; Weiss, Scott T.; Liu, Yang-Yu (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Microbiome-based stratification of healthy individuals into compositional categories, referred to as “enterotypes” or “community types”, holds promise for drastically improving personalized medicine. Despite this potential, ...
    • Prospect Theory for Online Financial Trading 

      Liu, Yang-Yu; Nacher, Jose C.; Ochiai, Tomoshiro; Martino, Mauro; Altshuler, Yaniv (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      Prospect theory is widely viewed as the best available descriptive model of how people evaluate risk in experimental settings. According to prospect theory, people are typically risk-averse with respect to gains and ...
    • Revealing the Intricate Effect of Collaboration on Innovation 

      Inoue, Hiroyasu; Liu, Yang-Yu (Public Library of Science, 2015)
      We studied the Japan and U.S. patent records of several decades to demonstrate the effect of collaboration on innovation. We found that statistically inventor teams slightly outperform solo inventors while company teams ...
    • Systems Pharmacology and Rational Polypharmacy: Nitric Oxide−Cyclic GMP Signaling Pathway as an Illustrative Example and Derivation of the General Case 

      Garmaroudi, Farshid S.; Handy, Diane E.; Liu, Yang-Yu; Loscalzo, Joseph (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Impaired nitric oxide (NO˙)-cyclic guanosine 3', 5'-monophosphate (cGMP) signaling has been observed in many cardiovascular disorders, including heart failure and pulmonary arterial hypertension. There are several enzymatic ...
    • Target control of complex networks 

      Gao, Jianxi; Liu, Yang-Yu; D'Souza, Raissa M.; Barabási, Albert-László (Nature Pub. Group, 2014)
      Controlling large natural and technological networks is an outstanding challenge. It is typically neither feasible nor necessary to control the entire network, prompting us to explore target control: the efficient control ...
    • Universality of human microbial dynamics 

      Bashan, Amir; Gibson, Travis Eli; Friedman, Jonathan; Carey, Vincent James; Weiss, Scott Tillman; Hohmann, Elizabeth L.; Liu, Yang-Yu (Springer Nature, 2016)
      Human-associated microbial communities have a crucial role in determining our health and well-being and this has led to the continuing development of microbiome-based therapies such as faecal microbiota transplantation. ...
