I will discuss the effect of geometric transformations on the topology of data. Geometric transformations are central in highlighting characteristics in the data that extract information. A common feature is that the same data set can provide answers to multiple problems. Thus the choice of underlying geometry is crucial in highlighting the answers to the correct problem. There will be many examples from systems biology.
