July First Thursday Scheduled for July 10 (7/8/08 ts)
All BCB Graduate Students and IGERT and MGET Fellows are invited to our July First Thursday supper which will be held Thursday, July 10, at 5:30 pm in 1102 Molecular Biology. We hope you will be able to join us as we review BCB program research efforts. Please let Trish know if you will be able to attend.
Baker Seminar Speaker, July 14 (7/8/08 ts)
Dr. Doina Caragea, Department of Computing and Information Sciences, Kansas State University, will present a July 14 seminar hosted by the L.H. Baker Center for Bioinformatics and Biological Statistics and Computational and Systems Biology Summer Institute from 1:10 to 2 p.m. in 1652 Gilman. The title of the seminar is:
Computational Methods for Gene Regulatory Network Discovery.
Dr. Caragea will be available to meet on Monday, June 14. Please let Mary Jane McCunn know if you would like to meet with her and what times you are available.
BCB Symposium Update: June 11 to 14, 2009 (4/28/08 ts)
Plans are underway to hold a symposium entitled: Systems Biology: Integrative, Comparative, and Multi-Scale Modeling,
June 11 to June 14, 2009, at the Scheman Education Building
in the Iowa State Center. This BCB-related symposium will be one in a long series of Growth Factor and Signal Transduction symposia held at Iowa State and sponsored by the Dept. of BBMB. Several researchers have already accepted our invitation to speak including:
Center for Complex Network Research at Northeastern University
www.barabasi.com or www.physics.neu.edu/Department/Vtwo/faculty/barabasi.htm
Neural Systems Group, Science & Technology Research Centre
University of Hertfordshire, UK and Division of Biology
California Institute of Technology
Biostatistics & Human Genetics UCLA
Institute for Molecular Bioscience, University of Queensland
UMBC Department of Biological Sciences
The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering
Georgia Tech & Emory University
NCBI, NLM, NIH
Computational Biology Branch
Department of Computer Science
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics
The Symposium will begin with a session on a vision of Systems Biology; past, present, future. The bulk of the Symposium will then cover the Modeling of biological processes at molecular, cellular and organismal levels, and at multiple scales of investigation. The meeting will emphasize both current applications of available modeling tools as well as pioneering research in fundamental aspects of biological modeling.
The Symposium will cover four dates (Thursday June 11- Sunday June 14, 2009) and 16-18 speakers who are world leaders in their respective fields are expected to provide 45-60 minute talks. In addition, 8-10 additional speakers selected from submitted abstracts will give 15-20 minute talks. A poster session will be held to provide an opportunity for students to present their ongoing research.
A unique aspect of this conference is that the conference will be part of the cross-disciplinary training of students in the ISU NSF IGERT training grant in Computational Biology. These IGERT trainees and associates will have access to the wide variety of world-class speakers at this Symposium, as well as other scientists attending. The students will have an opportunity to present their research in a poster session, as well as compete for the opportunity to present a short talk at one of the sessions, and also interact with speakers through assisting with transportation, etc. for the Symposium.
Final Defense for Kyoungmin Roh, July 11... (7/8/08 ts)
Kyoungmin Roh will be presenting her research during her Final Defense on July 11. The title of her dissertation is:
Evolutionary variance of gene network via simulated annealing algorithm. Kyoungmin's Home Department is EEOB and her Major Professor is Dr. Steve Proulx. Her presentation will take place at
10 a.m. in 240 Bessey Hall.
BCB students to present at ISMB in July(7/8/08 ts)
Eight students will be traveling to the ISMB 2008 conference to be held in Toronto, July 19-23. Several have had posters accepted ! Congratulations ! BCB and IGERT are sponsoring the student symposium in conjunction with this major BCB-related symposium. See http://symposium.iscbsc.org/.
BCB Library books can be checked out ! (2/9/08 ts)
There are a number of books that can be checked out from the BCB library located in 2014 Molecular Biology Building. Here is a current list. Those checked out are indicated. Stop by between 10 and 5 p.m. to check one out !
