The2012 Summer Graduate Workshop on Stochastics Applied to Biological
Systems <http://www.mbi.osu.edu/eduprograms/graduate2012.html> will be
held June 18-29, 2012, at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI)
at Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. The workshop is co-sponsored
by MBI, NIMBioS and the Centre for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and
Medicine (CAMBAM). The workshop features instructors from across North
America whose research expertise is stochastic modeling in biological
systems. Some of the topics to be covered include Markov chains, birth
and death processes, branching processes, Brownian motion and diffusion
processes, stochastic differential equations, and agent-based models.
Applications of stochastic processes will come from epidemiology,
ecology, phylogenetics, microbiology, evolutionary biology, and
genetics.Graduate students from the mathematical, physical and life
sciences are encouraged to apply.

*Dates:* June 18-29, 2012

*Location: *Mathematical Biosciences Institute at Ohio State University,
Columbus, OH

*Co-sponsors:* NIMBioS, MBI, and Centre for Applied Mathematics in
