Workshop on Computational Models in Biology and Medicine 2019

Joint workshop of the GMDS/IBS-DR working groups "Statistical Methods in Bioinformatics" and "Mathematical Models in Medicine and Biology"

March 7th-8th, 2019, Braunschweig, Germany

Workshop outline

This workshop intends to bring together researchers from different research areas such as bioinformatics, biostatistics and systems biology, who are interested in modelling and analysis of biological systems or in the development of statistical methods with applications in biology and medicine.

Planned Sessions

  • Bioinformatics of NGS data
  • Machine Learning / Optimization in Computational and Systems Biology
  • Multi-omics
  • Disease Modelling
  • Open Topics

Keynote speakers

  • Ivo Grosse (Halle): Talk "Phylotranscriptomic Hourglass Patterns of Animal and Plant Development and the Emergence of Biodiversity"
  • Jan Hasenauer (Bonn): Talk "Mechanistic models of large-scale biochemical reaction networks" (slides can be downloaded here and here)
  • Benjamin Werner (London): Talk "Quantitating somatic evolution in healthy and cancerous human tissues"

Registration and submission of abstracts

Registration to the workshop is free as long as places are available and can be done here. The submission of abstracts for posters and talks is closed.

Program and abstracts

The program with abstracts of talks and posters is available here. A short program can be found here.
