Seminar by Dr. Mary Winn of the Van Andel Research Institute: Biological and biomedical sciences are becoming increasingly quantitative, requiring a sound grasp of mathematics, statistics, probability, and scientific computing. Genomics requires an understanding of graph theory, the negative binomial distribution, empirical Bayes and quasi likelihood tests. Molecular systems biology relies on mathematical modeling for chemical reaction networks, biochemical kinetics, metabolic networks, signal transduction pathways, and gene regulatory networks. Descriptive and inferential statistics are used to visualize molecular data and test hypotheses. Biophysics utilizes differential equations and numerical methods. The biological sciences are littered with mathematical and statistical models. We’ll explore some of these fields and discuss how mathematicians, statisticians, and computer scientists come together with biologists to uncover the complexities of life. This seminar is sponsored by the Mathematics Department.
