Control Theory for Systems Biology
University of Groningen, November 12-14, 2007
The workshop is devoted to the mathematical modeling and analysis of complex metabolic, genetic, and protein networks, and the challenges this poses to the mathematical and engineering community. The aim of the workshop is to give the participants an introduction to this emerging research area, to put it into biological perspective, and to discuss some of the current mathematical modeling and analysis trends. The emphasis is on mathematics inspired by control theory and dynamical systems, aimed at developing theory and algorithms for modeling, identification, analysis, and control of large-scale biological networks and their dynamics. Each morning session starts with a tutorial lecture, introducing the main themes of the workshop.
