Phase separation is exploited by biology to organize a number of cellular processes.

Numerical tools designed to study biology at the molecular and cellular level have seen a dramatic development in the past decades and seem ripe to provide insight into the roles and mechanism of phase separation in health and disease.


The workshop will be focused on three main domains (without exhaustivity), as follows. Note that each cell subpart (membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus, etc.) requires specific modeling or experimental tools. However, in a cell these subparts strongly interact with each-other and mixing people working on these different entities will benefit to the whole audience.


a. Cell membrane and lipids


b. Cytoplasm and proteins


c. Nucleus, chromatin, and nucleic acids
