e-Science Institute Theme 14 starts today

Today saw the start of Theme 14 – Modelling and Microbiology – at the e-Science Institute in Edinburgh. The theme will run for 12 months and covers the interface between high performance computation and microbiology. We will bring together mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists and microbiologists in a series of focused workshops followed by a larger research conference next summer. The topics covered are:

  • Stochasticisty and microbial infection (this week)
  • Experiments and simulations of evolution
  • Modelling of metabolism

The next two workshops will be held in January and April and the conference at the end of June.

The theme has been funded by the e-Science Institute and is a collaboration between Rosalind Allen, Jamie Wood and myself.

The opening lecture (by Ros) will be webcast and I will post a link when it becomes available.
