Linda Petzold (University of California at Santa Barbara).

Day: Thursday, November 17, 2016.
Place: Smith Hall 120
Time: 4:00-5:00pm with reception to follow in Lewis Hall (Lounge, 2nd floor)

Speaker: Linda Petzold (University of California at Santa Barbara)
Title: The Emerging Roles and Computational Challenges of Stochasticity in
Biological Systems

Abstract:In recent years it has become increasingly clear that
stochasticity plays an important role in many biological processes.
Examples include bistable genetic switches, noise enhanced robustness of
oscillations, and fluctuation enhanced sensitivity or “stochastic
focusing." Numerous cellular systems rely on spatial stochastic noise for
robust performance. We examine the need for stochastic models, report on
the state of the art of algorithms and software for modeling and simulation
of stochastic biochemical systems, and identify some computational
