IRP Dynamical Systems meet Systems and Synthetic Biology (DynS^3Bio)

May - July 2020 
General information​

The impact of dynamics in systems and synthetic biology is of paramount importance. Typically, biological systems are highly nonlinear, and nontrivial dynamics can occur even in low-dimensional systems. Nonlinear dynamics can have a huge impact on complex ecosystems, tumor dynamics, or cell circuits, to cite a few examples. Dynamical systems theory offers a unique opportunity to model, simulate, and understand the dynamical outcome in systems and synthetic biology. These outcomes range from stationary states, to transient phenomena, or to transitions between states (bifurcations). The current development of new technologies and data processing may allow to handle high-ressolution dynamical information for complex biological systems. This fact, due to the development of low- and high-dimensional dynamical systems, offers a unique opportunity to provide qualitative and quantitative information by means of mathematical and computational models. The usage of dynamical systems to describe real-experimental dynamics is bidirectional: models allow us to understand and predict the behaviour of biological systems; new biologically-inspired models can give place to the discovery of new mathematical phenomena. The importance of dynamics in nonlinear systems spans the fields of theoretical ecology, biomedicine, diseases, epidemiology, among others. 

The ultimate goal of this IRP is to bring together leading experts in dynamical systems, theoretical and computational biology, and both experimental and field biology.
