Upcoming Mathematical Biology Seminars



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Modeling and measuring pattern formation in zebrafish skin"

Alexandria Volkening (Northwestern University)
-

Wild-type zebrafish (Danio rerio) are characterized by black and yellow stripes, which form on their body and fins due to the self-organization of thousands of pigment cells. Mutant zebrafish and sibling…

Past Mathematical Biology Seminars



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Constraints on the dimensionality of neural representations: a mesoscale approach linking learning to complex behavior"

Stefano Recanatesi (University of Washington)
-

In the domain of computational/theoretical neuroscience a recently revived question is about the complexity of neural data. This question can be tackled by studying the dimensionality of such data: is…



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Opinion Dynamics with Tunable Sensitivity: Consensus, Dissensus, and Cascades"

Naomi Leonard (Princeton University)
-

I will present a general model of continuous-time opinion dynamics for an arbitrary number of agents that sense or communicate over a network and form real-valued opinions about an arbitrary…



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Dynamics of movement in complex environments"

Sarah Olson (Worcester Polytechnic Institute)
- See Zoom link below

In this talk, we will highlight two different types of movement in viscosity dominated environments: sperm navigation and centrosome clustering in dividing cells.  Sperm often interact with chemicals and…



Mathematical Biology seminar: "From Cell polarity to intracellular networks in single and collective cell motility"

Leah Edelstein-Keshet (University of British Columbia)
- See Zoom link below

Cell migration plays a central role in embryonic development, wound healing and immune surveillance. In 2008, Yoichiro Mori, Alexandra Jilkine and I published a model for the initial step of cell migration, the front…
