Realising the Value of Modelling

View all sessions
DAY 2: Wed July 10
2:00 - 4:00
Parallel Session

Through in silico simulations and mathematical analysis, modelling enables us to (i) advance our understanding of fundamental biological features and mechanisms and (ii) learn about fundamental design principles and constraints that need to be accounted for when engineering biology. This session will investigate how modelling approaches can be effectively implemented in the synthetic biology design process to predict and inform the biological engineer. It will also explore the greater worth of modelling as a tool, and how its use elsewhere has had major impacts on society.
