Building the Cell

  October 24, 2007  
UCSF, Washington, D.C. Convention Center
December 1, 2007

Modern cell biology has made great strides in understanding cell structure and function. As with any engineering problem, however, there is a third important aspect that needs to be understood besides structure and function, and that is assembly. How are the complex three dimensional structures found within the cell specified by a one-dimensional genome? In this session we will explore the mechanisms by which cellular structures are determined and regulated. Because this question lies at the interface of biology and physics, we have put together a highly interdisciplinary session with speakers whose interests range from soft matter physics and mathematical modeling to imaging and cell biology.
Organized by: Wallace Marshall, UCSF
