The School of Biological Sciences is organizing a school on theoretical evolution and evolutionary dynamics with a focus on applications in cellular and microbial-level systems. We cover deterministic and stochastic models of natural selection and evolution, focusing on examples from microbial evolution, cancer, and evolution of virulence. We use more modern modeling approaches such as stochastic evolutionary games and evolutionary graphs for parts of the course.
The syllabus for the course is as follows:
- Review of cell biology and evolutionary concepts
- Models of natural selection
- Mutation-selection processes
- Evolution of antibiotic resistance
- Two-level selection and multicellularity
- Cell-cell interaction and signing
- Interacting populations and evolutionary games
- Models of migration and motility
- Growth and competition in tissues and networks (Moran processes)
- Cancer evolution
- Evolution of virulence. Infectious disease models
- Kamran Kaveh (University of Washington at Seattle (UW))
- Mehdi Sadeghi
- Amir Kargaran
- Arash Farjami
We are delighted to announce a unique opportunity for highly motivated individuals who aspire to further their academic journey to join our Game Theory School held at the Farmanieh Campus, School of Biological Sciences, IPM. We are excited to introduce our exclusive Graduate Student Registration opportunity. The fee for this school is 1,500,000 tomans.
