The q-bio Summer School now runs in three campuses, Albuquerque, San Diego, and Fort Collins. The program of the San Diego campus focuses on the emerging field of synthetic biology. A series of lecture mini-courses, individual research lectures, labs and tutorials will cover a broad range of topics related to computational aspects of contemporary synthetic biology. Students will attend two core lectures each morning followed by one research lecture. In the afternoon students will participate in computer labs and tutorials, and work on group projects in small teams, under the mentorship of the school faculty. Beautiful San Diego area offers unlimited possibilities for weekend activities including swimming, surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, biking, hiking, etc. We will offer an organized kayak tour of La Jolla Cove on the first weekend of the school.


Focus Areas

The school will cover a broad range of topics related to synthetic biology but the following focus areas will be emphasized:

  • Deterministic and stochastic methods for modeling of genetic circuits
  • General design principles of synthetic intracellular networks
  • Quantitative characterization of cellular signaling cascades
  • Image processing tools, cell segmentation and tracking
