April 11, 2013: Modeling Error Correction in Mitosis Using Bodystorming

Modeling Error Correction in Mitosis Using Bodystorming
An interactive presentation by Emily Tubman, IAS Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellow

How are dancers helping to inform a mathematical model of error correction in mitosis? How is bodystorming helping bio-medical engineers expedite initial stages of model development? In “Bodystorming” dancers move like molecules, following rules and “running” simulations for and with bio-medical engineers to explore the instances of mitosis where errors occur and daughter cells have too many or too few chromosomes, a hallmark of cancer.
