2020-09-25 Seminar Report

On September 23rd, Kyosuke Adachi gave a talk at the iTHEMS Biology Seminar on phase transitions in Biology. He first introduced the concept of phase transition and its possible application to understanding a number of biological phenomena. Then, he talked about his research on modelling the structural transition of chromatin states, and also about equilibrium and non-equilibrium dynamics. His research is really nice in how it engages both biologists and physicists, and many people seemed to enjoy his talk. In particular, the topic of chromatin dynamics is an area many molecular biologists are interested in at the moment, and we will be looking forward to hearing about his progress in the future.
