Abstract: The analysis of biological systems is becoming increasingly quantitative. The emergence of quantitative biology is due in no small part to significant advances in structural biology and single molecule biophysics. The advent of these various techniques has led to a situation in which experimental data has advanced at a much more rapid pace than the models aiming to respond to that data. The aim of this symposium will be to permit experimental leaders in quantitative biology to present in a tutorial fashion the basis of these quantitative insights and to argue for the types of mathematical models needed to respond to these experiments. This symposium will take place during two different one week periods and will involve a relatively small number of speakers in a relaxed atmosphere to encourage maximal discussion.
