10 April: Guest Lecture: The modern single life: stochastic modeling of individual cells and molecules

On 10 April, 2017, Daniel Hebenstreit will hold a guest lecture on "The modern single life: stochastic modeling of individual cells and molecules" in the Grünen Hörsaal (403) of the NW Faculty at 16:00. The Department of Molecular Biology invites you to join us!

Daniel Hebenstreit ist Assistant Professor for Molecular Systems Biology an der University of Warwick, School of Life Sciences & Warwick Centre for Integrative Synthetic Biology.

Abstract:

The recent introduction of experimental techniques with single molecule and single cell resolution have challenged traditional views of molecular mechanisms in biology; processes such as transcription have been found to be subject to substantial amounts of stochastic variation. It is unclear what sources of this ‘noise’ are and how cells cope with it. I will focus on our recent developments of superior experimental techniques and modelling approaches to allow novel insights into mammalian transcription. This will include the application of next generation sequencing to single cells, as well as the combination of flow cytometry with fluorescence in situ hybridization. We further use Bayesian statistical frameworks to interpret the experimental data and fit models to it. These interdisciplinary approaches allow us to understand transcriptional dynamics on both, a genome-wide scale, as well as on the single molecule and single cell level.

    Geologists from the University of Salzburg are greatly benefiting from the recently concluded science agreement between Iran and Austria. At least three new cooperation projects are planned. The expertise of the Salzburg geologists in finding gold or rare earths is, for example, very much in demand in Iran. Rare earths are among the most coveted raw materials in the world.
    Thanks to a generous legacy by Kurt Zopf, the University of Salzburg awards the Kurt-Zopf Prize, which is endowed with 10,000 euros, for habilitated members of organizational units of the university, which cover the areas of humanities, cultural and / or social science, jurisprudence or theology.
    From now until 3 July, it is possible to register for the "ditact_women's IT summer school" of the University of Salzburg . It takes place from 21 August to 2 September at the Unipark Nonntal and at the Fachhochschule Salzburg: http://www.ditact.ac.at.
