International Course on Theoretical and Applied Aspects of Systems Biology 2017
Systems Biology is a rapidly expanding field and comprises the study of biological systems through mathematical modeling and the analysis of large volumes of biological data. In this International Course students will have the opportunity to get in touch with the theoretical foundations of Systems Biology, as well as to understand its application in studies on human hosts, pathogens and associated diseases. This course is open to any interested students, both from FIOCRUZ and external institutions. The lectures will be presented by several international experts and will cover a comprehensive content related to systems biology. All lectures will be given in English.
Announcement: the International Course on Theoretical and Applied Aspects of Systems Biology 2017 will give origin to a book, published by Springer, belonging to the "Computational Biology" series. This series is sponsored by the International Society for Computational Biology. This book will be available in the first quarter of 2018. More details soon in this page.
