q-bio Summer School Introduction

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. 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. 

The Eighth Annual q-bio Summer School will be held on July 28 through August 12, 2014.

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.  Seven courses will be held on two campuses in Albuquerque (New Mexico) and San Diego (California).  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).
