Models of Biological Tissue Electrostatics and Molecular Transport (Jim Sterling, KGI)

April 8 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

In this presentation, some fundamentals of electrostatics in biology will be discussed with focus on the fact that most biological macromolecules including nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and proteins are negatively-charged. Electroneutrality requires cations to move toward the macromolecules where they both screen and bind to the negatively-charged groups. An important class of mathematical models of species-flux and electrostatics are known as the Poisson-Nernst-Planck, or PNP equations. These are partial differential equations describing some important biophysical consequences.
