Computational Approaches to Biological Systems: A Seminar Series Sponsored by NIGMS

Lipsett Amphitheatre, NIH Clinical Center

Start Date: 2/27/2003 11:00 AM

End Date: 6/5/2003 12:00 PM

An explosion of biological data and dramatic advances in computer technology are providing scientists with the quantitative means to analyze, model, and simulate complex biological processes as never possible before. These processes can range from the behavior of single molecules, through cellular processes such as metabolic flux, to the behavior of individual organisms and population dynamics. This seminar series will feature scientists on the cutting edge of these exciting new approaches.

All lectures are in the Lipsett Amphitheatre, NIH Clinical Center, from 11:00 am to noon.
