Event Details & Abstract: 

Stochastic simulation can make the molecular processes of cellular control more vivid than the traditional differential-equation approach by generating typical system histories instead of just statistical measures such as the mean and variance of a population. After introducing Gillespie's stochastic simulation algorithm, I'll give three case studies, involving gene expression, error correction, and adaptation in chemotaxis.
