Workshop on Computational Models in Biology and Medicine 2020

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

February 4th-5th, 2020, Bonn, 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.
The workshop is this time co-organised with the Hackathon on Integrative Pathway Modelling in Systems Biology and Systems Medicine. The hackathon starts after the workshop and information can be found here.

Planned Sessions

  • Genomics and proteomics
  • Single-cell data analysis
  • Statistical modeling and machine learning
  • Dynamical modeling
  • Open Topics

Keynote speakers

  • Dagmar Iber (ETH, Zürich): "From Networks to Function – Computational Models of Organogenesis" abstract
  • Douglas A. Lauffenburger (MIT, Boston): "Analysis of Context Dependence in Signaling Network Models" abstract
