Model
systems have played an important role in understanding the basic
processes in development, and this workshop will focus on a
number of such systems. These include (i) growth, pattern formation
and gene expression in limb development, (ii) bacterial signal
transduction, control of the flagellar motor and spatial pattern
formation, (iii) spatial pattern formation and differentiation
in the fruit fly Drosophila, (iv) signalling, chemotaxis, aggregation
and pattern formation in the cellular slime mold Dictyostelium
discoideum, and (v) axonal growth and guidance in the developing
nervous system. The program in each of the major areas will
include an overview by a leading experimentalist and several
talks devoted to mathematical modeling off the basic processes
involved in that system.
This workshop will emphasize the modeling of complicated biological systems, the qualitative and numerical analysis of the resulting model equations, and the interpretation and modification of models in the light of experimental data. The mathematical topics that arise in these models include dynamical systems theory, partial differential equations, and largescale numerical sumulations. The breadth of model systems involved should lead to extensive crossfertilization between these areas, encourage new collaborations, and provide new problems in modeling and mathematical analysis.
All talks are in Lecture Hall EE/CS 3180 unless otherwise noted.
