Time and Place:
Friday-Saturday May 24-25, 2002 , at the H.C.Ørsted Institute,
Universitetsparken 5, 2100 Copenhagen
Background and Scope:
Protein waves governing cell division
in prokaryotes have recently been modeled
using well established concepts from non-linear dynamics
describing self-organized pattern formation.
Oscillations and waves have also been recorded and modeled
for microtubule dynamics (linked to cell divison in eukaryotic cells).
The goal of this event is to
introduce participants to microtubule dynamics,
protein waves in prokaryotes, and a
framework of non-linear dynamics describing these phenomena.
This event caters to young researchers with an
interest in these and similar phenomena.
Lectures and talks are given by local
and invited experimentalists and theoreticians
who are experts in these fields. There will
also be a posters session and 10min. poster talks.
are welcome on one of the topics above that is:
1. protein waves in prokaryotes.
2. microtubule dynamics.
3. non-linear dynamics relating to pattern-formation and waves.
