The q-bio Summer School is an annual event intended to advance predictive modeling of cellular regulatory systems by exposing participants to a survey of work in quantitative biology and by providing in-depth instruction in selected techniques, with an emphasis on techniques useful for modeling cellular regulatory networks, although data analysis techniques and experimental methods will also be covered. Students will each work on mentored projects. Participants will attend daily core lectures, project-specific lectures, journal clubs, and computer and (in some cases) experimental labs. The summer school is designed for graduate students, postdocs, or anyone with a quantitative background who is new to modeling cellular regulatory systems/networks.
