OKO International Symposium 2023 – Mathematical Biology from Genes to Cells to Humans

Welcome to the OKO Symposium 2023

The developmental process of life is an orchestra that produces a beautiful harmony of temporal and spatial dynamics of all living units, including genes, cells, tissues, and organs. This symposium aims to share cutting-edge research results in mathematical biology in various life and medical topics ranging from genes to cells to humans, and to provide an opportunity to explore the next generation of mathematical biology.
