A Wednesday passed (the 21st)

Yesterday we had one talk, by Matteo Palassini. He discussed some recent work in Barcelona on the p53 regulatory network: the appearance of noise-induced oscillations in its dynamics due to number (of molecules) fluctuations. A coupling of the eigenvalues of the dynamical system and the noise gives rise to this. Matteo had a bit of PowerPoint trouble, but at the end it was resolved by the traditional means of a (white)board which then enlivened the audience...

... meanwhile the weather got better.
