The Plant Systems Biology Summer school run by the University of Warwick will take place in Venice, Italy, 12th-16th September 2011. It will be a mixed programme of research talks and workshops focused on different experimental and theoretical methods for elucidating gene regulatory networks.
The summer school is designed to foster the development of interdisciplinary research in plant science and develop a cohort of plant systems biologists in the EU for future collaboration and increased uptake of quantitative methods in plant science. This school is aimed at PhD students and researchers with less than 5 years postdoctoral experience from across Europe (including the UK). Participants can be already pursuing plant systems biology research, biologists working in plant science with an interest in systems biology, or mathematicians/computer scientists with an interest in biology. There is a maximum of 20 places on the summer school.
- Gene regulatory network inference from transcriptome data: selection of gene modules, Dynamic Bayesian network modelling.
- Experimental methods for determining transcription factor binding to plant promoters, computational elucidation of functionally important regions of promoters, learning transcription factor binding site information from Chip-seq data
- Analysis and visualisation of protein-protein interactome data
- Integration of multiple data types and scales (from single cell to tissue)
- ODE model creation, simulation and parameter fitting
