The 8th International Practical Course in Systems Biology, June 2017, Sweden

Interested PhD students or post-doctoral scientists are welcome to join the 8th International Practical Course in Systems Biology sponsored by FEBS. The course will take place between June 5-16 at the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Systems Biology studies the properties and phenotypes that emerge from the interaction of biomolecules where such properties are not obvious from those of the individual molecules. By connecting fields such as genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, mathematics, cell biology, genetics, mathematics, engineering and computer sciences, Systems Biology enables discovery of yet unknown principles underlying the functioning of living cells. At the same time, testable and predictive models of complex cellular pathways and eventually of whole cells and organisms are generated as tools for research.

This course will provide a hands-on experience in integrating experimentation and mathematical modelling with an emphasis on kinetic modelling of cellular pathways. The course employs yeast as model system for experiments and is open for students with experimental and/or theoretical background.

Application deadline: March 25, 2017
