#97 - Modeling Approaches to Examine Fundamental Issues in Life Sciences (15C01)
We invite submissions that describe the application of mathematical modeling to problems in the life sciences. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, metabolism, signal transduction, gene regulation, motility, and development. Preference will given to submission that directly link mathematical modeling with experimental data. Submissions that described novel modeling approaches are also encouraged.
