Connectomics
ID
857860
Dates
22 Apr 2017 - 29 Apr 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
This Advanced Course will focus on multi-scale aspects of the connectome – the comprehensive wiring diagram of the brain – and its impact on brain function, behavior and health. Ion channels, receptors, cells and synapses breathe dynamics into this wiring diagram and give rise to sensory responses, perceptions, decisions, memories and actions. Emphasis will be placed on the latest techniques of large-scale data acquisition, analysis, theory, modeling and simulation and aspects that will be covered include: 1) the cellular basis of connectivity including gene expression, morphology and electrophysiology, 2) large-scale data gathering and data analysis of whole brain connectivity across scales including electron microscopy, single neurons, meso-scale viral tracers, diffusion and functional whole brain imaging; 3) data integration of multimodal connectome data; 4) data-driven computational modeling and simulation at different scales of brain circuitry; 5) theoretical analyses of brain network topology and principles of connectivity; 6) the development of the connectome and its link to behavior and neurological disorders; 7) predicting whole brain dynamics from the connectome; 8) wakefulness, sleep and disorders of consciousness: the relationship between the connectome and the diversity of brain states and experiences.

MaCKiE 2017 — International Conference on Mathematics and bio(Chemical) Kinetics
ID
871418
Dates
25 May 2017 - 27 May 2017
Location
Budapest, Hungary
Abstract
Researchers all over the world are invited to attend the Mathematics in (bio)Chemical Kinetics and Engineering (MaCKiE) workshop between 25 and 27 May, 2017 in Budapest, the capital of Hungary. Since its first event in 2002, the MaCKiE workshop is organized in every second year. The previous meetings were held in Ghent (Belgium), Chennai (India), Heidelberg (Germany), and Houston (USA). The meeting aims to bring together scientists interested in the application of advanced mathematical methods to describe kinetic phenomena, especially chemists, mathematicians, physicist, biologists, and engineers. The acronym MaCKiE naturally comes from the title of the conference, but is also part of the German name of Mack the Knife in Brecht and Weill's Threepenny Opera, Mackie Messer, and is phonetically indistinguishable from “makkie” in Dutch, optimistically meaning “a cinch”.

BMTL2017 — Bringing Maths To Life
ID
883717
Dates
07 Jun 2017 - 09 Jun 2017
Location
Naples, Italy
Abstract
Advances in high-throughput technologies in omics-related fields have changed the approach to the understanding of biological phenomena. The vast amounts of data made available by the -omics revolution is generating torrents of data, often referred to as big data. Dealing with big data in turn calls for generation of techniques, technologies, models, storage infrastructures and collaborative platforms to capture the often unexpected features of complex biological systems. Bringing Maths to Life 2017 will bring together leading scientists in mathematics, biology and computational biology working in different fields to create a scientific platform for data sharing, to learn about big data and -omics novel developments, and to confront ideas and realities through case studies and practical experiences. The workshop, as a mélange of different fields, will consist of selected contributions for open discussion to present and confront the most updated results at the interface of mathematics and biology in three main sessions: 1) Data: Acquisition, Pre-processing and Storage in different omics datasets; 2) Information: Data analysis, Novel -omics technologies, Application of deep learning to different -omics datasets; 3) Knowledge: Integration of different -omics data, System biology of -omics data

2017 IMB Conference: Gene Regulation by the Numbers: Quantitative Approaches to Study Transcription
ID
879526
Dates
19 Jun 2017 - 21 Jun 2017
Location
MAINZ, Germany
Abstract
Our conference will explore the latest findings and technological developments in the field of gene regulation. The regulation of gene expression is a highly complex process in which numerous different factors play a role, such as signalling pathways, transcription factors and epigenetic modifications. With the recent surge in the development of omics technologies, researchers have generated vast amounts of data describing the contribution of these factors to controlling gene activity. However, interpreting, validating and integrating the data remains a major challenge. A combination of quantitative analysis and experimental research is therefore crucial to draw a complete picture of gene regulation.

Whole-cell modeling school 2017
ID
893872
Dates
04 Sep 2017 - 07 Sep 2017
Location
Barcelona, United States
Abstract
Whole-cell models are promising tools for predicting phenotype from genotype by accounting for every individual gene and cell function. Whole-cell modeling has the potential to enable rational bioengineering and precision medicine. However, significant work remains to develop fully complete and accurate whole-cell models. The goal of the 2017 Whole-Cell Modeling Summer School is to provide young investigators cutting-edge training in large-scale dynamical modeling and model integration.

EMBL Course: Digital PCR
ID
834666
Dates
05 Sep 2017 - 06 Sep 2017
Location
Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract
Real-time PCR has been adopted as the gold standard for nucleic acid target quantification in genomics research and is increasingly used for clinical analysis. However, there are some applications, such as precise measurement of copy number variation, low-abundance sequence detection, detection of rare mutations, including distinguishing rare sequences in tumours, and low-level gene expression analysis, where real-time PCR shows limitations. Digital PCR overcomes those limitations by enabling researchers to directly quantify nucleic acids, without the need for a standard curve, and provides higher precision than real-time PCR.

Dates
03 Oct 2017 - 06 Oct 2017
Location
Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract
The course participants will use BioConductor software and Illumina BaseSpace Cloud apps. R-coding skills and deep knowledge of statistics are not necessary for attendance because most analyses will be performed with OneChannelGUI (a graphical interface to a series of BioConductor tools, which enables handling microarray data analysis as well as RNA-seq data without requiring programming skills). Computers for hands-on exercises will be provided along with demo data sets. Upon request, participants could bring along their own data to analyse.

ID
881654
Dates
06 Oct 2017 - 08 Oct 2017
Location
Illinois State University, Normal, United States
Abstract
This is one of the most vibrant and productive meetings in mathematical biology. In addition to several parallel sessions on a large spectrum of topics on implementing mathematical and statistical techniques to solve real life problems from medical, biological, and ecological fields, prominent invited speakers will present the latest state of art in mathematical biology. It is a unique venue for undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and especially for junior faculty to network and disseminate their work. The research journal, Letters in Biomathematics, will publish a fully-refereed Special Issue as conference proceedings. Additionally, the only referred undergraduate research journal in biomathematics, Spora, will accept submissions from the student presenters. A signature feature of the meeting is a traditional soccer match between biologists and mathematicians. We hope you can join us for BEER-2017 at the gorgeous Illinois State University campus.
