Biomathematics Seminar: Systems biology of metabolic and signalling networks

Presented by Junli Liu, Durham University

4 February 2011 15:15 in CM107 (Mathematical Sciences)


The talk is concerned mainly with systems biology of metabolic and
signalling networks. Systems biology of metabolic systems will
concentrate on the dynamics, flux control and flux regulation in
metabolic systems. I will use some examples to discuss the implications
of nonlinear dynamics such as bifurcation and basin of attraction in
systems biology. Systems biology of signalling networks includes the
first hormonal crosstalk model in plants; ion dynamics model for pollen
tube growth and a model for calcium signature. I will discuss the major
mathematical and modelling tools that are applicable in systems biology
and the challenges we have when we use mathematical tools in systems
biology.
