Seasonal Special Happenings

Technology Talk

When: Tue., Aug. 25 2015

Life, Universe & Hot Dogs, the Happy Dog's monthly program devoted to thinking about contemporary issues, returns to the club as Mike Hinczewski gives a lecture dubbed "Cellular Telephone Games: Coping with Noise in Biology." The lecture isn't about cell phones but about how "the chemical networks which transmit and amplify signals from receptors on the cell surface are like an elaborate game of telephone: with each stage of the transmission, information is lost through the random nature of the interactions."In his talk, Hinczewski will explore "how ideas in physics and engineering arising from this wartime effort are now helping us understand noise filtering strategies in living systems." It begins at 7:30 p.m. and admission is free. (Niesel)
