This seminar series focuses on the progress in the control of biological systems. The scope is broad and accommodates works addressing theoretical, computational, and experimental problems combining Systems and Synthetic Biology, Systems and Control Theory, Physics, Computer Science, and Applied Mathematics. Topics include, but are not limited to,
- Modeling, inference, simulation, analysis, filtering and control of reactions networks
- In-vivo and in-silico filtering, control and optimization of biological systems
- Understanding and engineering homeostatic behaviors in living organisms
- Understanding and exploiting noise for the analysis and the design of biological systems
- Fundamental limits in the control and filtering of (noisy) biological networks
- Networks as computing machines and network implementation of mathematical functions and dynamics
- Molecular tools for the implementation of in vivo or in silico control
- Realization and implementation of synthetic circuits
- Applications in biology, biotechnology, bioprocesses, environment, ecology, etc. as well as in bio-inspired design
We aim at providing a common forum for sharing knowledge and encouraging discussion and collaboration across subfields. In particular we aim at facilitating interactions between junior and established researchers in order to foster career development in academia and industry. These considerations are reflected in the choice of speakers and we will strive to create an excellent, exciting and diverse schedule.
The seminar runs (for now) once a month at 11am to noon EST (observe that this webpage shows the schedule in your current time zone). Each session consists of one 45-minute talk followed by questions. Attendees are welcome to stay longer for casual discussions and questions to the speakers which are not necessarily directly related to the talk.
For this to work well, you need to have the latest version of Zoom installed (version 5.3.0 or higher), and use the desktop client or mobile app (not supported on ChromeOS).

We look forward hearing about new work and meeting many of you over zoom at the address: mit.zoom.us/j/94325327926?pwd=TTBMSXlhT2xJT1lzcEM3WTZmTFpBQT09.
Please also feel free to join our Slack server, where we routinely share interesting papers, talks, and relevant career development opportunities.
