UC San Diego's Center for Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (CCBB) provides researchers with core bioinformatics expertise to analyze large molecular datasets in the areas of genomics, systems biology and personalized medicine.

We assist investigators with understanding how to make good use of computational tools and analysis methods for solving hypothesis-driven problems in molecular biology. We place special emphasis in the areas of genomics, systems biology and personalized medicine. We also provide expertise in statistical analysis and training where applicable.

    Math Modeling Tutorial Workshop
    Monday, March 27 through Friday, March 31, 2017
    10am – 12pm
    UC San Diego, Bonner Hall (Room 2130)

    Organizer: Dr. Lev Tsimring, BioCircuits Institute, UC San Diego

    The Network Assembly and Mathematical Modeling Core of the San Diego Center for Systems Biology presents a series of hands-on tutorials on kinetic modeling of intracellular dynamical processes and gene regulation.

    The schedule and topics covered by the tutorials is as follows:

    Day 1: Overview

    Day 2: Deterministic modeling: model derivation, simulation, and techniques

    Day 3: Bifurcation analysis of deterministic models

    Day 4: Stochastic modeling techniques

    Day 5: Model fitting and parameter sensitivity analysis

    The format of the tutorials is 5 daily 2-hour sessions. The first hour of every session will be the theoretical overview of the material followed by an hour of guided hands-on exercises. Participants must bring their own laptops.

    This series of tutorials is intended for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers of affiliated SDCSB labs interested in learning computational modeling tools and their applications to biological problems.

    This workshop is limited to 25 participants, registration is required.


    Free street parking is available along La Jolla Shores drive

    No Show Policy

    While we do not charge a fee to attend this event, these programs would not be sustainable and available to all wanting to attend, unless all registrants abide by the 48 hour cancellation notice policy. A no-show will also limit your ability to book our events
    in the future. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    We hope you can make it!
