EMBL-EBI virtual training course: Mathematics of Life 2024

When: 11/03/2024 - 15/03/2024
Where: Online
EMBL-EBI training course "Mathematics of Life - modelling molecular mechanisms", a virtual modelling course for beginners

Our course features tutorials, group projects, & talks from academic and industrial researchers. It will be a brilliant opportunity to learn modelling concepts and tools from scratch and gain some hands-on experience.

The course is promoted for experimental biologists, bioinformaticians and mathematicians who have just started to work on systems biology modelling, are familiar with the basic terminology in this field and who are now keen on gaining a better knowledge of modelling approaches to understand fundamental biological problems and application in pharma Industry. In the course you will (i) Identify the strengths and weaknesses of systems qualitative and quantitative modelling approaches (ii) Access, query, and retrieve data/models from public repositories for systems biology modelling (iii) Use modelling software to develop reproducible systems biology models and (iv) Discuss the real-life application of models in fundamental and industrial research
