Physics 500.005 (29960): a seminar on biophysics and medicine.

            The class will meet at 3:00 pm on Thursdays in room 1131.

            Kevin Cahill gave the first talk on miRNAs, on a Nature article that showed that miRNAs act mainly by stimulating the degradation of mRNAs, and on tip's, which are transmissible interfering particles.

            Keith Lidke gave the second talk on this paper.

            An IGERT seminar on Monday 9/13 was the third talk.

            The seminar of 9/23 will be a talk by Dr. Alex Mogilner, University of California at Davis, on Tuesday, September 21, at 4:00 p.m. in the Harvey Library (BMSB 309).   Title:  "Speed and Accuracy of Mitotic Spindle Assembly."

            Kevin Cahill will talk about statistics on 9/30 at 3 pm.

            Julian Antolin and Steven Posse will give the seminar of 10/7 at 3 o'clock in room 1131.  Title: "An Overview of Compressed Sensing with Application to MR Imaging."

            The talk of 10/21 will be "Integrin nanodomains on leukocyte cell membranes" by Maria F. Garcia-Parajo of the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia on
Tuesday, October 19 in Harvey (BMSB 309) at 4:00 p.m.

            Kevin Cahill gave an introduction to protein folding as the 10/28 seminar.
