Multiscale integration in Biological Systems

3rd edition

One of the fundamental issues in biology is the understanding of the relationship between the multiple spatial and temporal scales observed in a biological system. From molecules to a cellular function, from a collection of cells to an organism, or from individuals to a population, the complex interactions between singular elements can give rise to “emergent” properties at the ensemble level. To what extent can the spatial and temporal order seen at the system level be explained by subscale properties?

Presentation

Objectives

The course will give an overview of modern physical tools that have been developed to address the issue of scale integration (mornings) and will show how these tools can be applied to specific biological systems (afternoons).

Research themes

Student work

Poster presentation

Practical information

Details

Master2 students, PhD students and postdocs interested in the interface between physics and biology. (The course will provide 10 ECTS at some doctoral schools in Paris, e.g. ED PIF and ED FDV). Students or researchers can also audit the course without receiving credit.
