Welcome to the q-bio Summer School and Conference!

The Eighth q-bio Summer School

From Q-bio

Welcome to the wiki for the 2014 q-bio Summer School. Please see below for a brief description of the school and instructions on how to apply.


The q-bio Summer School is an annual three-week event intended to advance predictive modeling of cellular regulatory systems by exposing participants to a broad survey of work in quantitative biology as well as providing in depth instruction in modeling techniques relevant to specific areas. The areas that will be covered this year include stochastic gene regulation, cell signaling, biomolecular simulations, cancer, membrane biology, and experimental and theoretical methods in synthetic biology. Participants will attend daily core lectures, course specific lectures, and small-group computer lab demonstrations and discussions. The core lectures will tend to cover theory and modeling of cellular regulatory systems/networks. The labs are hands-on and specialized. Students will work on projects individually or in small teams under the guidance of the summer school faculty. The summer school is designed for graduate students, postdocs, or anyone with a quantitative background who is new to modeling cellular regulatory systems/networks.

Core lectures will take place on two campuses (in Albuquerque and San Diego). All students are encouraged to attend the q-bio Student Symposium in Albuquerque, NM, which will feature student project reports and invited seminar-style talks. Students are also encouraged to submit an abstract to, and participate in, The Eighth q-bio Conference in Santa Fe (Aug. 13-Aug. 16, 2014). (Abstracts submission is open here).


The Eighth q-bio Summer School is scheduled for July 27-August 12, 2014 at two campuses, one in Albuquerque, New Mexico and the other in San Diego, California.
