Summer Graduate Workshop on Stochastics in Biology at MBI
The 2012 Summer Graduate Workshop on Stochastics Applied to Biological Systems will be held June 18-29, 2012, at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI) at Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. The workshop is co-sponsored by MBI, NIMBioS and the Centre for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine (CAMBAM). The workshop features instructors from across North America whose research expertise is stochastic modeling in biological systems. Some of the topics to be covered include Markov chains, birth and death processes, branching processes, Brownian motion and diffusion processes, stochastic differential equations, and agent-based models. Applications of stochastic processes will come from epidemiology, ecology, phylogenetics, microbiology, evolutionary biology, and genetics. Graduate students from the mathematical, physical and life sciences are encouraged to apply.
