Registration is open for the course "MODELLING DINAMICS IN BIOLOGY. FROM HISTORY
TO PRACTICAL EXAMPLES", January 19-22, 2015. 28 hours on-site.
Instructors: Dr. Andreea Munteanu (CGR, Spain) and Dr. Carlos Rodríguez-Caso
(Universidad Pompeu Fabra, Spain)
Place: Premises of Sabadell of the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel
Crusafont, Sabadell, Barcelona (Spain)
The current course will present an overview of systems biology with emphasis on
the necessity, uses and pitfalls of dynamical modelling in biology. It
introduces the required language and philosophy for a smooth and fruitful
collaboration between life scientists and theoreticians (i.e. mathematicians,
physicists, computer scientists). The main goal of the course is not a detailed
description of the modelling tools in systems biology, but a thorough overview
of the terminology and applicability range of these methodologies. The time
dedication throughout the course will be one third for theoretical introduction,
and two thirds for modelling applications for very diverse biological systems.
The participants will acquire the necessary skills to understand and interpret
models and modelling results from scientific articles, and will take the first
steps into building their own mathematical models.
