FAYETTEVILLE — A University of Arkansas computer scientist will receive a nearly $440,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to further his research in the development of theoretical and computational models of self-assembling systems.

Matt Patitz, an assistant professor of computer science and computer engineering, is receiving the grant.

The models simulate or mimic complex biological processes, such as evolution, self-replication and immune system behaviors, and the formation of prions — protein particles that may cause brain diseases.

The models can be used to help scientists develop artificial self-assembling systems in laboratories and will make valuable contributions to the theoretical understanding of biological systems.
