We are pleased to announce the second annual Systems Biology of Infectious Diseases workshop hosted by the Center for Viral Systems Biology (CViSB) at the Scripps Research Institute.
The two-and-a-half day workshop will emphasize computational systems biology approaches to improved understanding of host response to viral infection, across a spectrum of methods and applications. Among topics discussed in the presentations will be included: evolution of virus and host immune response, antibody repertoire, antibody-mediated immune functions, immune cell receptor recognition, immune cell communication and signaling, design of clinical treatments, and patient population analysis. Approaches described will range from structural and quantitative biochemistry/biophysics models to machine learning algorithms to dynamical systems simulations.
This workshop, directed towards grad students, postdocs and ‘junior’ investigators, will be hands-on and limited in size. Programming/bioinformatics experience is recommended (but not required).
