June 3 - 12
From data to biology and back - Reverse engineering biological networks
At INMED and on Luminy campus of Marseille (France)
The CENTURI Summer School has been created to build bridges between scientists and engineers, allowing them to meet, exchange and work together on interdisciplinary projects.
The CENTURI summer school is aimed at students from engineering schools with backgrounds in physics, mathematics and computational sciences who are interested in applying their skills towards problems in biology. The summer school, entitled “From data to biology and back”, will introduce major open questions in systems biology. It will address those questions through the use of state-of–the-art techniques for analyzing and modelling data sets, via hands-on projects.
The mornings will be dedicated to lectures by high-level speakers to tackle biology’s challenges in data analysis but also to presentation of experimental methods used to collect biological data in experimental labs and to specific sessions to better understand research and daily life in academia. The afternoons are dedicated to hands-on projects on biological data. Participants will work in small groups and use state-of-the-art equipment to collect and analyze biological data sets. Participants will also have the chance to present their project and benefit from valuable feedback from a tutor and a scientific committee.
