Spatio-temporal Dynamics of Synthetic Microbial Consortia

Modeling is essential in the design of genetic circuits with desired properties. I will review several examples where mathematical models have been central to the development and understanding of the dynamic of synthetic organisms. I will focus on synthetic bacterial microconsortia that exhibits emergent oscillatory behavior - when co-cultured, the interaction between two bacterial strains results in population-level transcriptional oscillations. The spatio-temporal dynamics of such consortia, including synchrony between distant parts of the population, depend sensitively on the architecture of the underlying genetic circuits. I will show how simplified mathematical models can help us understand how robust oscillations arise, and how spatially synchronous oscillations are maintained.…

Statistical Methods With Varying Coefficient Models in Longitudinal Studies

Varying coefficient models play important roles in exploring the dynamic pattern of the association between the independent and dependent variables in many scientific areas. As an example, subjects are monitored over a period of time in longitudinal studies and their repeated measurements of the independent and dependent variables may change over time. To the end, time-varying coefficient models in which coefficients are smooth regression functions of time are natural extensions of varying coefficient models. Upon the aim of longitudinal studies, the functional coefficients can be functions of other variables instead of the time variable. The primary purpose of this talk is two-fold: 1) to introduce interesting scientific questions that arise in longitudinal studies and 2) to propose new statistical methods with different varying coefficient models that address the scientific questions.…
