Goals of the Workshop:
Discussion of different applications of methods of stochastic analysis and statistical physics for studying biological systems and stimulation of new interdisciplinary collaborations. Some of the specific topics to be covered include pattern formation in development, aggregation in bacteria colonies, protein folding, regulation of gene expression, immunology, cytoskeleton, biological networks, and genetic drift.

Participants will be invited to contribute to the special Issue of the Journal of Statistical Physics (JSP):

All papers will be refereed in accordance with the JSP policies.

Limited funding may be available to support attendance by graduate students, postdocs and junior faculty. Poster presentations are encouraged and a limited number of contributed talks will also be accepted.
