Population Dynamics Seminars

Seminars about Quantitative Life-Science and Biophysics
hosted by the group of Rosalind Allen

School of Physics and AstronomyThe University of Edinburgh
Friedrich Schiller University Jena

Organised by Marco Mauri

We are running a series of virtual seminars on Population Dynamics and more broadly about Quantitative Biology, Computational Life Science, and Theoretical Biophysics. The talks are often at the interface among biology, physics, and mathematics. We ask people who have written interesting papers to join us and present their papers. The meetings are open to everyone! Please register at the bottom of this page.

The meetings will take place on zoom, roughly every three weeks, on Fridays at 2.30pm UK time (3:30pm Europe, 8:30am CST).
