Often a biological system will span either multiple time or spatial scales. The spring school aims at giving an introduction into methods and research allowing a better understanding of such multiscale systems from the point of view of mathematics, physics, biology, and informatics.
Topics covered include:
- Methods for making the connection between continuum macroscale models and discrete molecular phenomena
- Parameter space reduction
- Multi-scale modeling systems using optimization
- Monte Carlo methods
- Multiscale statistics
- Multiscale systems modelling for signaling and activation
- Models of cellular networks
- Protein-Protein, Protein-DNA interaction
- DNA and chromatin
The spring school will include tutorials, lectures and practicals.
Mini-Symposium May 22 and 23:
Part of the school will be a Mini-Symposium on Multiscale methods and Modelling in Biophysics and Systems Biology. Please contact the organizers if you wish to participate in the symposium. Talks as well as posters are welcome.
