Theory Journal Club
We are interested in reading and discussing theory papers focused on biology.
Themes include :
- information theory,
- control theory,
- physical biology (influence of noise, analogies evolution/physics, ...)
- any links with other theoretical fields : economy, machine learning, ...
Contact Paul for more info.
