Mathematics in Biology Day

This day event is part of the collaborative workshop "Mathematical Biology in Saxony" organized jointly by the University of Oxford, the Algebraic Systems Biology of Heather Harrington in the Center for Systems Biology in Dresden (CSBD) and the Nonlinear Algebra group of Bernd Sturmfels at MPI-MiS in Leipzig.

This workshop offers a unique opportunity for researchers from these different institutions to explore current research areas in mathematical biology. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about exciting research topics and establish valuable collaborations.
