Currently I am doing some Teaching Assistance for an advanced Math Biology / Biophysics class. Wanting to point our students towards a simple example of a Gillespie algorithm (check references by Gillespie and textbooks for a description of the algorithm) in MatLab, I found that google served up one fully developed set of boxed functions … Continue reading Simple Stochastic Simulation in MatLab
Yesterday PLoS Computational Biology published one of our studies. At PLoS Computational Biology, they have the nice speciality of a 'friendly abstract', called the Author Summary. It is supposed to be accessible to a general (educated) audience. As PLoS is all open access, I will shamelessly and righteously copy and paste from our paper: Dependent … Continue reading Actin and Tropomyosin Isoforms in Smooth Muscle Molecular Mechanics
Fred Simard has organized a Computational Neuroscience day by and for CAMBAM students, which took place May 7, 2013. He came up with the brilliant idea of recording the workshop lectures on video, and we now also have a CAMBAM student youtube account. Check out what we have on offer! (Adapted from original post on … Continue reading Computational Neuroscience Workshop – Online!
Check out the freshly "pressed" interview on the occasion of Leon Glass's being awarded the Arthur Winfree prize by the Society of Mathematical Biology, which Thomas Quail and me did for the Inside CAMBAM blog. It contains spiral wave lichens and insights of someone who is speaking from experience. Enjoy!
Image: Simulation of colonies seeded from single lesion mutant cells and exposed to different levels of lesion stress. The cellular events in the colony are monitored till detectable colony size or colony extinction are reached. Graph adapted from Lennart Hilbert, 2013, Phys. Biol. 10:026001 doi:10.1088/1478-3975/10/2/026001 Over the past 30 and some years, an increasingly convincing … Continue reading Stress-Induced Hypermutation – a Physical Process?
Past Friday, June 8, 2012, it was time for the 3rd CAMBAM Annual Meeting. The past Annual Meetings both created a little bit of a magical atmosphere, befitting such a day that only happens once a year, and only once. Participants were invited to the McGill Faculty Club, its wooden interior speaking of prestige and privilege. … Continue reading Review of CAMBAM’s 3rd Annual meeting
