Interested in updating your knowledge in Bioinformatics & Systems Biology fields? This summer school aims at informing the students and young scientists about the latest trends in the field. Our event is organized in partnership with SYSGENET, a COST Action (BM0901).
THEME: The exponential increase in high-throughput 'omics data sets are rapidly changing standard paradigms that have dominated research in the past. Understanding gene interaction networks under different genetic and environmental influences will soon be a sine qua non for new strategies for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide range of human diseases. Over the last two decades, sophisticated experimental systemsmost notably mouse modelshave been exploited to study gene functions, network structure, and gene-by-environment interactions. Murine genetic reference populations, such as the Collaborative Cross and the BXD family, incorporate large numbers of genomic variants and have reached a level of genetic variation that exceeds that of the entire human population. These and other resources are being use as experimental systems for sophisticated mathematical, statistical, and computational modeling of human health and disease. The six-day school will provide both a forum for new ideas and serve as a practical workshop. Students will interact closely with senior bioinformaticians, systems biologists, geneticists, statisticians, and engineers.
The six days event will act as a forum where Bioinformaticians, Systems Biologists and Engineers will present the latest and future theories and methodologies how to achieve the integration of the ever-increasing flow of high throughput biological data communication and set the framework to find advanced solutions in complex diseases.
TOPICS: Experimental/algorithmic design of reverse engineering protocols, Pathway inference and reverse engineering of cellular networks, Cellular signatures of biological responses and disease states, Phosphorylation, metabolic fluxes, systematic phenotyping, Mathematical modeling and simulation of biological systems, Chromatin state establishment, maintenance, and role in development, Post-transcriptional regulation and small regulatory RNAs, Regulatory networks, metabolic networks, proteomic networks, Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, Web Services in Bioinformatics, Databases and Data Management, Pattern Recognition, Clustering and Classification, Next Generation Sequencing
APPLICATIONS: Complex disease (infections, liver diseases, metabolic diseases, behavioural abnormalities, cancer etc.) modeling using Mouse Genetic Reference Populations
The presentations will consist of a series of invited talks and tutorials given by experts of major research groups. The venue of the 6th International Summer School will be the Patras Center of Sciences, situated in a scenic place close to the university campus. The organizers will provide means of transportation from the venue to the hotels.
This programme requires students to demonstrate proficiency in English.Take IELTS test
We are also glad to announce that the COST office, through the SYSGENET Action, will provide several grants to help students covering expenses towards attending the School. Students who wish to apply for grant will have to submit their CV too. Selection will be based on academic merit and research potential. More information will be posted in the website soon.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
