5-13-21. Drs. Ann Cowan and Les Loew are co-authors on a new paper in PLoS Computational Biology, “Ten steps to investigate a cellular system with mathematical modeling” that teaches how to use mathematical modeling with VCell software to explore cellular systems.
6-24-2021. CCAM hosted the 2021 Computational Cell Biology workshop JUnew 21-23, providing instruction to over 50 individuals from around the world on mathematical modeling techniques using VCell, COPASI and SpringSaLaD software. Fifteen of the participants worked closely with CCAM researchers to develop their own models related to their research projects. Another successful year for the modeling workshop!
4-8-21. Yuezhe Li, a PhD student with Yi Wu and co-mentored by Boris Slepchenko, successfully defended her thesis today. Congratulations Dr. Li! Dr. Li plans to move on to a position with Metrum Research Group, which specializes in modeling and simulation related to drug development.
3-24-21. Dr. Michael Blinov and his former undergraduate student John Albanese are co-authors on a paper in Briefings in Bioinformatics describing SBGN Bricks ontology, a new ontology that facilitates the use of template bricks for repeated processes in biological networks.
3-17-21. Dr. Michael Guertin will join CCAM and the Department of Genetics and Genome Sciences in July, 2021. Dr. Guertin’s research combines genomics, biochemistry and computational biology to explore mechanisms of transcriptional regulation and regulatory cascades in hormonal signaling. Welcome Mike!
