Andrea Ocone:

We present a probabilistic framework for modelling transcription-translation networks. Our modelling approach is based on a continuous description of the protein expression behaviour, combined with a discrete representation of the promoter state. We solve state inference and learning problems with a variational approach. Results are obtained on simulated data and on real data from the circadian clock of the alga Ostreococcus tauri.

 

Duncan Carmichael: Co-morbidity in synaesthesia

Synaesthesia is a perceptional condition which results in a merging of the senses - stimulation of one sensory modality will elicit an experience in another modality. In this talk, I will review evidence that may demonstrate links between synaesthesia and other conditions.
