Abstract: Many physical processes involving cells and associated entities such as viruses involve inherent irregularities due to thermal fluctuations or other noisy aspects of protein function, arising from the small scales, flexible structures, and/or reliance on diffusive transport of small numbers of biomolecules. The quantitative study of such systems generally relies on stochastic models which integrate the uncertain noisy aspect in a physically, or sometimes phenomenologically, motivated manner. The speakers in this minisymposium will illustrate how stochastic models can be deployed and analyzed to obtain insights on a broad variety of cellular processes.
