Theory of Living Systems

Theory and computing at the frontier of modern life science

 

About

Modern approaches to research in the life sciences are more quantitative than they have ever been.  Across a broad spectrum of fields, the precision, fidelity, and resolution of available data only continues to improve year on year.  This has so far proved transformative, leading to an increasing role for theory and computation, and raising the prospect of truly integrated approaches to the study of animate, living systems.

The Theory of Living Systems is a webcast seminar series and mailing list based out of Australia and New Zealand.  The aim is to promote cutting edge research at the interface of theory, computation and life science.

We hope to encompass a broad range of traditional disciplines, including (but not limited to) biophysics, systems biology, mathematical ecology, active matter, computational neuroscience, collective behaviour, and much more.
