NIMBioS Investigative Workshop: Mathematical Modeling of Intracellular Movements

October 24-26, 2011

Knoxville, TN

Recent advances in live cell microscopy have resulted in a flood of time-lapse observations that reveal a high degree of motility inside cells. Quantitative analysis of these movements is necessary to gain a full understanding of intracellular dynamics and their regulation. This analysis is often hampered by the sheer complexity of the movements, the great number of objects to be tracked, and the diffraction limit of optical microscopes. At the same time, mathematical and statistical models have made significant progress in producing fast algorithms that reliably track multiple objects in space. In some cases, these models were successfully applied to cell biological data sets, but the full potential of a rigorous mathematical approach that can be employed across a wide range of biological processes has not been realized. This NIMBioS Workshop will bring together experts from cell biology as well as mathematics, statistics, computational science and physics to discuss current approaches and possible alternatives.
