Gordon Research Conference "Theoretical Biology & Biomathematics"

Tilton School, New Hampshire, June 9-14, 2002


Mathematical and Theoretical Biology is a rapidly growing field. The purpose of this meeting is to highlight exciting areas of growth and to provide a perspective for future directions. The meeting is designed to be particularly attractive to students and postdocs by providing a broad view and inviting excellent speakers. There will be a prize for the best poster.

The meeting consists of plenary talks and poster sessions. The complete program of the conference can be viewed and/or downloaded at the Gordon Conference website

The conference revolves around the theme of "modeling complex networks", from genetic circuits to ecosystems. There will be sessions on Phylogenetic Trees, Structure and Function of Primary Visual Cortex, Modeling Parkinsonian Rhythms, Modeling Chemotaxis, Gene Regulation Networks (Morphogenesis), Global Environmental Change, Gene Regulation Networks (Robustness and Disease), Transcriptional Regulation, Computational Biology in a Changing Scientific Culture (with special lectures by Charles DeLisi, one of the pioneers of the Human Genome Project, and Marvin Cassman, Director of NIGMS at NIH).
