Mathematical Modeling in Biology and Drug Design

1:30 PM-3:30 PM
Plumeria & Tiare (Salon 9 & 10)

This session focuses on the application of mathematical modeling in solving problems arising from DNA sequence analysis, protein and RNA folding, biomolecular dynamics, and drug design. The speakers who are researchers from biology, chemistry and physics disciplines, will present their point of view and discuss on how we can better contribute to the multidisciplinary effort in solving outstanding biological problems.
