Modeling an evolutionary conserved circadian cis-element using functional and comparative genomics

Wed, 2007-09-26 14:30 - 15:30
Duff Medical Building : 3775 rue University Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2B4

Discussion of two problems in computational circadian biology: 1. Stochastic phase oscillators and circadian bioluminescence recordings cultured circadian oscillators from peripheral tissues were recently shown to be both cell autonomous and self-sustained. Therefore the dominant cause for amplitude reduction observed in bioluminescence recordings of cultured fibroblasts is desynchronization rather than the damping of individual oscillators. We propose a generic model for quantifying luminescence signals from biochemical oscillators, based on noisy phase oscillators. Our model incorporates 3 essential features of circadian clocks: stability of the limit cycle, fluctuations and inter-cellular coupling. The model is then used to analyze bioluminescence recording from immortalized and primary fibroblasts. Fits to population recordings allow simultaneous estimation of the stability of the limit cycle (or equivalently the stiffness of individual frequencies), the period dispersion and the interaction strength bet

Teaching tips for effective science lectures

Thu, 2007-09-27 16:30 - 18:00
Redpath Museum : 859 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C4

For Science graduate students: Do you want to be a more effective teacher? Learn concrete strategies to engage students and increase learning. We'll demonstrate simple teaching strategies, using science content, that can be incorporated into lectures to improve student learning and discuss some key aspects to planning a seminar or conference session. Presentation includes a demo of the new "clickers" (Student Response Systems) used in some first-year Faculty of Science courses. This seminar focuses on techniques for lecturing and is independent from the 2-day T-PULSE graduate teaching workshop. Followed by wine and cheese. Please RSVP at website below.
