When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
SESSION: BIOLOGY: Dynamic Biochemical and Spatial Models: Virtual Cell
EVENT TYPE: Education
TIME: 3:30PM - 5:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Raquell Holmes
Presenter(s):Raquell M. Holmes
ABSTRACT: The Virtual Cell is designed for experimental cell biologists to theoretical biophysicists studying dynamical cellular systems. The biological and mathematical models can range from simple biochemical reactions to complex signaling networks used to evaluate hypotheses, to interpret experimental data, or to probe the predicted behavior of complex, highly non-linear systems. Users build models that specify the physiology of the biological system, including compartmental topology and geometry, molecular characteristics, and relevant interaction parameters. Mathematics-savvy users can bypass the schematic interface to specify a mathematical description of the model. Models can be created as continuous or stochastic numerical models with solvers as explicit as Euler to fully-implicit spatial solvers. Participants will be introduced to creating Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE), Stochastic and Partial Differential Equation (PDE) models within the Virtual Cell, as well as accessing pre-existing models from publicly available databases.
Prerequisite: "Introduction to Systems and Synthetic Biology" session or equivalent.
