The Society for Mathematical Biology Annual Meeting and Conference, July 25-28, 2012

SMB 2012 Minisymposia

MS10: Modeling and computation of macromolecular structures and interactions (1) - July 26, 9:40-11:20 a.m.   SESSION D
Organizers: Julie Mitchell (Mathematics and Biochemistry, Univ. of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, USA);   Shan Zhao (Mathematics, Univ. of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL, USA)
Presenters: Jason Cantarella, Duan Chen, Oscar Gonzalez, Julie Mitchell

Summary. Molecular based mathematical biology has been emerging as one of the most promising interdisciplinary research areas in the interface of mathematics and biology, driven by the fact that most experimental research in the life sciences is based on molecular biology or molecular level understanding. This minisymposium will focus on recent advances on a variety of modeling and computation developments for studying macromolecular structures and interactions. Example topics include molecular dynamics, implicit solvation models, molecular docking, protein folding, protein-protein interaction, biomolecular solvation, ion-channels, etc. Emphasis will be placed not only on mathematical theories and methods, such as those based on differential geometry or partial differential equations, but also on biomolecular simulations and software developments.
