TU Dresden | Sommersemester 2020 Seminar in Mathematical Biology

Computational Morphogenesis

 

Objective

Mathematical biology is an interdisciplinary scientific research field aiming at the mathematical representation, modeling and analysis of biological processes. It provides both theoretical understanding and practical assistance in biological, biomedical and biotechnology research. Describing systems in a quantitative manner means, for instance, that their behavior can be numerically simulated such that properties can be predicted that might not be evident to the experimentalist or are experimentally inaccessible.

The seminar focuses on mathematical models and computational methods addressing key problems in developmental biology, especially in the field of dynamic spatial organization of cells and tissues. Participants will implement and critically analyze recent results from high-impact scientific papers across the topics (1) Cell motility, (2) Growth, (3) Tissue morphogenesis and (4) discuss the Grand Challenges that the field of computational morphogenesis is facing. Using software like Morpheus , models can readily be implemented and simulated, allowing the analysis of critical parameter dependencies and comparison to experimental data. Developed models and results will be submitted to an open and citable model repository. This seminar is intended for undergraduate/graduate students and researchers in mathematics, physics, biology, medicine, and computer science who are interested in this highly interdisciplinary research area. The final seminar program incl. 30min project presentations by participants will be developed at the Kick-off meeting.

Time and Location

  • Time: 4 Wednesday afternoons 13.00-16:00: May 27, June 10, June 24, July 8
    via video conference
  • Kick-Off meeting and distribution of talks: April 22, 14.00-15.00, via video conference. Please follow this link to a BigBlueButton session (will start just 5 min ahead of the date). You only need a browser (any type), no webcam required. We'll stream an introductory talk on the projects and you can sign up for your project with later presentation in the "shared notes" panel (check out an online tutorial on youtube to see how that works, or see the their documentation).
