Modeling and Simulation Group Meeting Old

Modeling and simulation of dynamic cross-linked networks

Speaker: Ondrej Maxian and Sophie Marbach, Courant Institute

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 517

Date: Thursday, September 30, 2021, 12:30 p.m.


Sophie will investigate how to accurately and efficiently model binding kinetics of cross linkers diffusing around and attaching to fibers, as is common in the cytoskeleton. Then, Ondrej will give a more detailed look at how we use the coarse-grained model to simulate a cross-linked network of hundreds of actin fibers and quantify their mechanical properties using different morphologies and models of hydrodynamic interactions.
