Of Form and Function: Stochastic Optimization Elucidates Role of Dynamics in Proteinopathies – 2/27/2017

Amarda Shehu Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science George Mason University Abstract: All processes that maintain and replicate a living cell involve moving biomolecules. The energy landscape underscores the inherent nature of biomolecules as dynamic systems interconverting between structures with varying energies. Biomolecular structural transitions regulate diverse processes, such as allosteric signaling and catalysis, and […]

A novel role for Drosophila Amyloid Precursor Protein in regulating axonal retrograde trafficking of selective cargoes – 3/6/2017

Tanja Godenschwege Florida Atlantic University Department of Biological Sciences Abstract: One of the pathological hallmarks of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is the presence of β-amyloid plaques that result from abnormal processing of the Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP). Although a great deal is known about AD pathology, relatively little is known about the normal biological function of […]

The Challenge of Modeling Cognition for Computational Social Science – 3/20/2017

Bill Kennedy Assistant Professor Center for Social Complexity Computational Social Science Program Abstract: Computational Social Science (CSS) uses models of cognition, mostly human cognition. Zero intelligence agents may be useful for some economic experiments and agents with preferences about their neighbors and moving randomly may demonstrate the emergence of segregation, but better models of individual’s […]

Using Symmetries of Complex Networks of Oscillators to Find All Synchronization Clusters – 3/27/2017

Louis M. Pecora US Naval Research Laboratory Washington, DC Abstract: Several common physical systems can be modeled as a set of oscillators of some type connected to each other in a complex network. For example, power generators in an electric grid, neurons in brain structures, and gene interactions in cells. Many networks of coupled oscillators […]

Self-Propulsion: Molecule to Animal – 4/3/2017

Khalil Iskarous Department of Linguistics University of Southern California   Abstract: Motility is one of the most fundamental processes in biology, and it’s an aspect of life that occurs at many levels:  motor proteins within cells, cells across ECM, up to whole organisms. The ability to propel oneself, whether that self is a motor protein […]
