The Cell Modeling Workshop will will focus on three main topics. We will describe the latest version of the MCell simulation environment and CellBlender, a design and visualization framework that complements MCell. We will also demonstrate novel tools to incorporate rule-based modeling techniques into MCell simulations based on the BioNetGen software, and how the CellOrganizer system can be used for creating image-derived models of cell shape and organization that can be used in MCell. This three-day event will be led by Drs James Faeder (Pitt), Thomas Bartol (Salk), and Robert F. Murphy (CMU). The deadline to apply is May 26th. Space is limited. Support for this workshop is provided by MMBioS, an NIH Biomedical Technology and Research Resource (BTRR).
Sushmita Roy’s research focuses on developing statistical computational methods to identify the networks driving cellular functions by integrating different types of genome-wide datasets, that measure different aspects of the cellular state.
Roy is interested in identifying networks under different environmental, developmental and evolutionary contexts, comparing these networks across contexts, and constructing predictive models from these networks.
Specifically, some research topics of interest are:
Inference of structure and function of regulatory networks
Comparative analysis of expression modules across species
Evolution of gene regulation
Relational learning to predict function
Modeling condition-specific functional behavior
Learning causal networks
Predictive models of phenotypic response
