Announcement / 2019 Calendar

online cell modeling seminar


The Center for Reproducible Biomedical Modeling would like to invite you to participate in a monthly online cell modeling seminar beginning Tuesday November 6th.

Predictive models of cells are needed to understand biology, rationally design microorganisms, and precisely treat disease. Numerous challenges must be overcome to develop predictive models of entire cells. This seminar aims to stimulate discussion about how to overcome these challenges and foster an interdisciplinary cell modeling community.

Tools for Systems biology modeling and data exchange: COPASI, CellNetAnalyzer, SABIO-RK, FAIRDOMHub/SEEK

March 18th-20th, 2019

Heidelberg, Germany


During this 3-day course, attendees will learn basic techniques for modeling of biochemical networks including data access and storage due to the FAIR principles. The first day introduces kinetic modeling techniques which will be illustrated and exercised with COPASI. The second day continues with principles of stoichiometric and constraint-based modeling coupled with hands on exercises using CellNetAnalyzer. The third day SABIO-RK is used as a resource for kinetic data and FAIRDOMHub/SEEK is introduced as a data and model management platform fitted to the needs of systems biologists. The hands on exercises throughout the three days will ensure that attendees become familiar with the software tools and with analyzing, creating, editing, importing, simulating and storing biochemical networks.

March 25-29, 2019

Pasadena, California, USA, on the campus of the California Institute of Technology.   


HARMONY is a codefest-type meeting, with a focus on development of the standards, interoperability and infrastructure for computational modeling in biology. There are generally not as many general discussions or oral presentations during HARMONY as in other events; instead, the time is devoted to allowing hands-on hacking and interaction between people focused on practical development of software and standards.
