The Center for Reproducible Biomedical Modeling would like to invite you to participate in a monthly online cell modeling seminar beginning Tuesday November 6th.

Predictive models of cells are needed to understand biology, rationally design microorganisms, and precisely treat disease. Numerous challenges must be overcome to develop predictive models of entire cells. This seminar aims to stimulate discussion about how to overcome these challenges and foster an interdisciplinary cell modeling community.
