Systems Biology International Course
The Graduate Program on Computational and Systems Biology of the Oswaldo Cruz Institute (IOC/Fiocruz) will promote the ‘International Course on Theoretical and Applied Aspects of Systems Biology’ between February 29 and March 4, 2016. The deadline for applications runs until February 21. The activities will take place at the Fiocruz campus in Manguinhos, Rio de Janeiro.
Those interested in attending this event should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org containing the following information: Full Name; email; Institution; Graduate Program; Position (graduate student; researcher; professor); Enrollment status (regular – BCS students only; listener).
The purpose of this course is to address the main concepts of systems biology and its applications. It is aimed only at graduate students and researchers. The course will have theoretical and practical activities focused on topics such as the mathematical modeling of a cell, cancer modeling, modeling of metabolic networks and the construction of regulatory networks.
This course will have practical and theoretical lectures about the aforementioned topics ministered by professors and researchers from the following institutions: Fiocruz, the University of Luxembourg, the University of São Paulo, the Fluminense Federal University and the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte.The event will be presented only in English.
