Physics of Behavior
Fri, Oct 7, 2022, 10:00 am4:00 pm

The physics of behavior aims at a more complete characterization of complex animal movements under more naturalistic conditions.  This symposium samples recent progress in this field.  We will hear from  theorists and experimentalists as they discuss how ideas from dynamical systems theory and statistical physics can…

Marc Gershow: Maggots! Making Memories and Reading Minds
Mon, Oct 10, 2022, 12:30 pm1:30 pm

My lab studies the brains of larval fruit flies as models of neural computation. We are interested in the rules by which the larval brain transforms sensory input into motor output to navigate an uncertain environment, how the larva’s brain changes these rules as it learns new information, and how these rules and changes are encoded in the…

Roseanna Zia: How Colloidal Physics Instantiate Life in Biological Cells
Mon, Oct 31, 2022, 12:30 pm1:30 pm

We are interested in how physics at the colloidal scale instantiate life in biological cells. While principles from physics have driven recent paradigm shifts in how collective biomolecular behaviors orchestrate life, many mechanistic aspects of e.g. transcription, translation, and condensation remain mysterious because…

Anders Hansen: Dynamics of 3D Genome Structure and Function
Mon, Nov 14, 2022, 12:30 pm1:30 pm

Animal genomes are folded into loops and topologically associating domains (TADs) by CTCF and loop extruding cohesins. These loops and domains are thought to play critical roles in regulating gene expression by regulating long-range enhancer-promoter interactions. But whether CTCF/cohesin loops are stable or dynamic structures was…

Tian-Ming Fu: Probing Biological Dynamics in Multicellular Organisms: from long-term electrophysiology to high-resolution imaging
Mon, Nov 21, 2022, 12:30 pm1:30 pm

The urgency to probe biological dynamics is impeded by a major challenge: the large dynamic range of biological processes—interactions of molecules within milliseconds can lead to changes across the whole-organism over days to years. It calls for measurements with both high spatiotemporal resolution and large-scale long-term coverage. However,…
