III International Course on Theoretical and Applied Aspects of Systems Biology - 2019


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, associated diseases and cancer. This course is open to students and researchers in the field. 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. The lectures will be broadcasted live through the Campus Virtual Fiocruz platform.
