The poster by Maciej Majka on stability of gene expression patterns presented at international conference Diffusion Fundamentals IX received an award. In justification, the organizers highlighted that the creative application of physics research methods to problems of biological nature was highly appreciated.
This week our group participates in the 35th Marian Smoluchowski Symposium and on Wednesday we switch to Diffusion Fundamentals. On both Maciej is presenting his research on stability of gene expression domains in developing tissues. It is great to meet in person!
Last week Maciej Majka presented results on the stability of gene expression domains at the DPG Condensed Matter Section conference in Regensburg. The conference was great opportunity to attend broad range of Biophysics and Condensed Matter talks and network with other researchers!
The 18th Congress of the Polish Biophysical Society is ongoing in Warsaw, https://18zjazd.ptbf.pl/. Many good talks on ligand-receptor interactions, gene regulation, and medical applications took place today. The day concluded with over 50 posters covering broad range of biophysical research.
Yesterday Maciej successfully defended his Bachelor thesis on the role of inhibitory synaptic plasticity in shaping neuronal dynamics. Good luck Maciej in your future neurobiology research!
The latest results of Maciej’s project on how stable gene expression patterns are formed in systems with dynamic source regions are now available on-line at https://arxiv.org/abs/2206.14138 . Using a reaction-diffusion model with step-function production term, we identify phase transition between low-precision indeterminate patterning and the phase in which a well-defined contact zone between two domains is formed.
Tomorrow at 12:00, Maciej will give talk at IChF PAN in Warsaw. Maciej will present his latest results on stability of gene expression patterns that are established by two interacting morphogen sources. Please contact me directly to receive Zoom link for the seminar.
Tomorrow we inaugurate a series of discussion panels on non-scientific aspects of doing science. Together with Kasia Dziedzic-Kocurek we will moderate the discussion on various aspects of doing PhD and what to do next. We meet in Konfitura restaurant nearby campus at 17:30. The event poster has the list of invited panel attendees and further details.
Today Maciej Majka presented his results on stability of gene expression domains in developmental systems with dynamically formed sources of morphogens. The talk was part of the series of Interdisciplinary Seminars: Enigmas of Chance. Thank you everyone who took part in this hybrid event.
Today Michał Komorowski from IPPT PAN in Warsaw will talk about making sense of cellular signaling complexity within the series of Interdisciplinary Seminars: Enigmas of Chance. We invite to join us stationary in seminar room D-2-43 or on-line via MS Teams. The talk starts at 12:00.
