SDBW04 - Spatially distributed stochastic dynamical systems in biology

We have introduced interacting-particle reaction-diffusion (iPRD) simulations as a hybrid between molecular dynamics simulations and particle-based reaction-diffusion simulations. iPRD is a suitable modeling framework for many cellular signaling processes, especially such processes involving dense protein mixtures, supramolecular architectures or protein scaffolds at membranes. I will introduce to the theory behind iPRD and present computational algorithms.

One of our key application areas is clathrin-mediated endocytosis in neurons, and I will briefly elude to simulations of protein recruitment to clathrin-coated pits and the interplay between membrane-associated proteins and membrane deformation in endocytosis.
