Evolutionary Dynamics and Influenza - Symposium

Fri, Oct 12, 2018, 9:30 am

In recent years, ideas and methods form statistical physics have reshaped our understanding of simple models for evolutionary dynamics, as well as suggesting new approaches to the analysis of large scale sequence data. Viruses, and teir interactions with their hosts, provide a natural laboratory for these ideas.

ITS Symposium: Protein droplets and the physics of intracellular phase separation

Fri, Dec 1, 2017, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm

Cells contain compartments (organelles), bounded by membranes, within which particular functions are localized.

ITS Symposium: Physics of bacterial growth

Fri, Oct 13, 2017, 9:30 am to 6:00 pm

The growth of bacteria provides a literal microcosm of the problems faced by all cells and organisms.  Growth requires extracting energy from the available nutrients, and this in turn requires coordinated expression of the genes that code for metabolic enzymes.  During the growth process itself cells have to make multiple decisions, with life-...

ITS Symposium: Quantitative approaches to behavior

Fri, Sep 15, 2017, 9:30 am to 6:00 pm

The first thing that fascinates us about life is the macroscopic behavior of organisms.
