Hands-on Quantitative Biosciences Modeling Workshop: Stochastic Gene Expression in Cells
Dates: May 22-23, 2017
Venue: Georgia Tech
Do you want to integrate computational models of living systems into your research or courses, but have limited (or no) prior modeling experience? Director Joshua Weitz & 1st year PhD students in the QBioS graduate program at Georgia Tech invite you to join us for a two-day, hands-on workshop intended for PhD students and instructional faculty in the life sciences. The workshop will feature:
- DIscussion of recent biological advances in the analysis of mechanisms underlying stochastic gene expression.
- An introduction to basic programming concepts in MATLAB and Python.
- A hand-on tutorial with practical exercises in modeling stochastic gene expression in cells, with dual instruction in both MATLAB and Python.
- Interactive discussion of ways to integrate stochastic models into problems at other scales of living systems.
Programming Languages: Matlab or Python
Skill Level: No Prerequisties
Application Deadline: March 30th.
Responses to be delivered by April 4th.
