341 Computational Methods in Biological and Biomedical Systems

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Carmel I (Hotel Nikko San Francisco)
Description:
Biological approaches in chemical engineering are increasingly characterized by systems-level treatment of biological systems and the use of synthetic systems under complex control. Issues such as network size, network cross-talk, and parameter sloppiness can cause significant problems in both numerical analyses and biological interpretation that must be addressed. This session invites contributions that apply existing numerical methods to systems biology and biomedical simulation problems, as well as contributions that identify unique numerical problems that arise in such biological and biomedical systems and address them with novel approaches.
