Poster award

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.

DPG2022 in Regensburg

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!

Preprint on arXiv!

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.

Off-science discussion panel

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.

Talk on pattern stability!

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.

Cellular signaling talk!

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.
