Amber Biology's Alex Lancaster presents Statistical Bioinformatics seminar at Sydney University


Amber Biology Partner, Alex Lancaster will be presenting at the Statistical Bioinformatics Seminar at the Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney on May 7, 2018. The title of the seminar is Modeling cellular systems: stochastic approaches in evolutionary research and therapeutic applications. The theme of the seminar is stochasticity - random noise at the cellular, developmental and organismal level - which plays an under-appreciated role in both evolutionary and biomedical research. The seminar presents an overview of his work in computational modeling of stochasticity in cellular systems, including yeast prions, signalling and gene networks and sepsis. The seminar focuses on the role of noise in shaping evolutionary trajectories and therapeutic intervention. It will highlight the benefits of agent-based R&D strategies to illuminate these questions, spotlighting the research that Amber Biology is performing in the biotech startup space.
