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!
PTBF2022 in Warsaw
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.
Maciej Kania with BSc
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!
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.
Maciej’s on-line talk at IChF PAN!
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.
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.
Postdoc position #Ukraine
We open call for PhDs interested in systems biology. The project goal is to identify regulatory mechanisms that affect patterning precision in the developing spinal cord. Details can be found at: https://zagorskigroup.com/open-positions/. If you are interested please contact me in advance. We wait for your application till 30th May!
SONATA BIS results
In SONATA BIS call from 2021, 12 out of total 44 funded projects will be realized at Jagiellonian University (results). In our group openings for both postdocs and PhD students are planned in the following months!
