Summer School 2011 Summer School 2011
Date: August 14 - 19, 2011
Location: Kandersteg, Switzerland and SIB have joined forces to organise a PhD Summer School entitled, «From Data to Models in Biological Systems». The objective of this course is to teach PhD students how to integrate, manage and analyse experimental data using advanced bioinformatic tools. Topics covered include the visualization of complex biological interactions and the application of modeling to predict network processes.

Theoretical approaches and their practical application covered during the week will be of interest to both systems biology and bioinformatics PhD students who wish to become competent in the application of computational approaches to address biology at the systems level.

Lectures, hands-on sessions and round-table discussions will provide the necessary environment to generate lively and informative discussions. The following professors will participate in the school: Sven Bergman (University of Lausanne and SIB), Nicolas Le Novere (EMBL-Heidelberg), Sean O’Donoghue (EMBL-EBI), Dagmar Iber (ETH Zurich and SIB), Bas Teusink (VU University of Amsterdam), Daryl Shanley (University of Newcastle), Susan Gasser and Michael Stadler (FMI Basel).
