About the lecture
Time and placeThe seminar takes place Tuesdays at 17:30 in room N110 (Schellingstrasse).
The goal of this seminar is to introduce graduate students and researchers in different disciplines to current stochastic modelling approaches for biological systems, and in particular, biological networks. A short tutorial and an overview of the BioMed-S* researcher’s current work will introduce each approach. Case studies then illustrate in detail the group’s research. Although the seminar will have a computational focus, it also hopes to attract interested experimentalists, especially biologists and biochemists.
BioMed-S (short for "Analysis and Modelling of complex Systems in Biology and Medicine") is a program funded by the LMUinnovativ initiative. Principal investigators include the seminar organizers on the computational side and Jürgen Haas (Medicine), Kirsten Jung (Biology) and Joachim Rädler (Physics) on the experimental side. The program will also recruit new faculty to strengthen the research in the program’s 3 clusters: Quantitative Biology and Biostatistics, Complex Systems in Molecular Medicine and Structure and Dynamics of Functional Modules in Biological Model Organisms.
