Topic: Gene expression is an inherently noisy process due to the stochastic nature of the underlying molecular processes. In this seminar, we will study original publications that quantify noise in gene expression data from diverse sources, learn mathematical models to describe the observations, infer parameters, and discuss the functional implications of noise in biological systems. Apart from becoming familiar with computational biology, we want to strengthen presentation and discussion skills of the participants.
