Miss Leila Ghanbar
I am a PhD student working on modelling biological systems in the computer. The focus of my study is to construct a multi-level library of models which could be used individually or as a combination to describe a biological behaviour. I provide protocols to use these models, as well as the library.
To build these models, I use Petri nets in the platform of Snoopy. I sue Spike to simulate my models from candl and andl files and use R and Python to analyse the data taken from the models.
the focus of my models is mostly on communication and movement as well as division and death of the system. I have built models of quorum sensing and biofilm formation in detail and abstract and have applied the models to design the chemotaxis of Dictyostelium towards cAMPs.
