SB@NL2014 Systems Biology Symposium

December 15-16, 2014

Aula, School of Business and Economics (SBE), University Maastricht

Whole-cell modeling summer school

March 9-13, 2015

Rostock, Germany

We are pleased to announce the hackathon-style summer school to be held next year in Rostock, Germany, with the aim of developing an open version of the Karr et al. whole-cell model (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22817898).

The primary aim for the participants of the summer school is to learn about standards for modeling and simulation in computational biology. But a secondary aim is to enjoymodeling, coding and diagramming the whole-cell model using openly available software and COMBINE standards (http://co.mbine.org). 

An anticipated outcome of the event is a roadmap for future developments needed in the different standardisation efforts involved in the summer school. Together, we want to answer the important question: "What is missing in today's standards?" We believe this will help provide guidelines for COMBINE. 

In total, we will accept up to 50 students (PhD to early postdoc level), who will be fully funded through the Volkswagen Foundation. The application form is open until the 31st of October.

Details of the summer school are available from the following website: http://bit.ly/wholecell
