EECS Colloquium: Controlling structure in living cells: from cellular size control systems to CellCAD

306 (HP Auditorium) Soda Hall
  • Wallace Marshall, Center for Cellular Construction, UCSF
Living cells are complex self-organizing machines in which different biochemical reactions are compartmentalized in membrane-enclosed chambers. Biotechnology, especially metabolic engineering, has long sought to harness the living cell as a microscopic chemical factory, but almost all the effort to date has been directed at manipulating the chemistry of the cell, and the physical structure of the...

EECS Colloquium: Machine Learning for Fluid Mechanics

306 (HP Auditorium) Soda Hall
  • Petros Koumoutsakos, ETH-Zürich
The field of fluid mechanics experiences today a shift from first principles to data driven approaches. While fluid mechanics has always involved massive volumes of data from experiments, field measurements, and large-scale simulations and despite early connections dating back to Kolmogorov, the link between Fluid Mechanics and Machine Learning (ML) has been weak. The situation is rapidly...
