    Through billions of years of evolution, cells developed various strategies to maximize their fitness or the fitness of the organisms to which they belong.  In optimizing their functions, cells also implemented design principles that can be quite “universal.” Many of these strategies and principles are amenable to quantitative analyses and from different perspectives such as mathematics, computation, information theory, engineering, game theory, and so on.  The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts as well as motivated students from diverse backgrounds to exchange ideas and research progress, and to brainstorm in an interactive and close setting.
