Applied Math Seminar

Ching-Shan Chou (The Ohio State University)


Mathematical biology has been an emerging field in the past decade, in which mathematical tools have been applied to study complex biology networks and pathways. In this talk, I am going to introduce my research in the area of computational cell biology; in particular, we are interested in studying the localization of intracellular proteins in response to external stimuli or internal cues. Budding yeast was used as the model system in our investigation. I will present the mathematical models of partial differential equations, and numerical method for simulations, as well as the experimental data that inspired modeling and new hypotheses.
