Part 1 of the course is for experimental biologists who want to learn how to develop and use quantitative computational models of cellular signaling processes. Prior modeling experience is not required due to the unique visual interface of Simmune. Participants should, however, have an active interest in quantitative aspects of cell biological phenomena. The course will provide hands-on guidance using examples such as G-protein coupled receptor signaling, growth factor signaling networks, chemokine sensing, and cellular adhesion.
Part 2 is aimed at computational modelers who want to use the capabilities of the Simmune API in their projects. Programming experience is required. Typically, people participating in the second part may want to join the first part as well.
Participants should ideally bring their own laptops, but computers will also be provided on site.
Please send an email with subject "Course" to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a brief statement of your research interests and specify which part(s) of the course you are interested in.
A limited number of scholarships for travel and lodging are available.
A recent manuscript highlights some of the capabilities of Simmune:
