Using computational power tools to bolster systems biology

ARLINGTON, Va. The introduction of eigenmode number-crunching to the study of ion flow in heart-thumping typifies what can happen when computational mathematics meets systems biology. To help the two disciplines get better acquainted, the National Science Foundation is sponsoring a workshop to explore how computational innovations can lead to a greater understanding of how the components of life interact at levels larger than chromosomes and smaller than populations or generally in the context of cells, organs and organisms.

The workshop is being held today and tomorrow, March 27-28, at Utah State University in Provo.

Titled The Roles of Mathematics and Computation in Systems and Integrative Biology, the workshop will bring together more than 20 biologists, mathematicians and engineers, many of them researchers supported by NSF, will try to determine which methods hold the most promise, what obstacles exist, and how to promote their broader use by biologists.

Journalists are welcome to attend the workshop or follow up by contacting its participants and organizers. For details, contact the following at Utah State:
