Workshop 2: Numerical Methods in Cell Biology

Numerical Methods in Cell Biology

The living cell is where life emerges from inert matter. Understanding how cellular functions arise from huge collections of interacting molecules requires concepts from physics and engineering, but the limited and anisotropic resolution of subcellular imaging, combined with the inherently stochastic nature of molecular systems, means that methods appropriate for macroscopic physical systems such as electronic circuits must be adapted to handle the challenges that arise when studying the living cell. This workshop will focus on numerical methods and algorithms for quantitative cell biology in a highly interactive format, with a focus on distilling best practices and deciding how to improve future approaches.

Directions to the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in Union Square San Francisco
Talk about the perfect location, the Sir Francis Drake Hotel is enviably situated at the doorstep of Union Square, steps from the shops and sights of one of San Francisco's top attractions. Being one of the world's best walking cities, we'd have to recommend you see as much of San Francisco as possible on foot, but also we're located just a quick taxi, Metro or cable car ride to other top places to visit including The Embarcadero, SOMA (South of Market), the Financial District and the Moscone Convention Center.

Conference Center information will come later........
